Telescope discovers surprising hole in space


A large hole in space has been discovered by using a telescope. No one expected to see this hole, because it was in the part of the universe that was thought to be covered in clouds and dense gases. "no one has ever seen a hole like this," says Tom Megeath, a study member from University of Toledo, Ohio. The hole was found May 10 later in the night. Astronomers think the hole opened when the jets of gas from the young stars in that area punctured the sheet of dust and gas. They also say the radiation from the older stars might have helped make the hole as well.

A hole in space? Thats something I would like to see some day. Who knew the radiation from a old star could somehow create a hole in the sky? I agree with Megeath i don't think this is something many people have seen.
