Nothing to see here!

The Herschel Space Observatory has discovered a gaping hole in space - a truly empty`void.

This may have been created by thin jets of gas from some of the young stars in the area, in combination with powerful radiation from a nearby adolescent star`which have blown a hole through a gas cloud nearby.

The European Space Agency`s infrared telescope spotted the `hole` in a bright cloud of gas imaginatively named, NGC 1999. In visible wavelengths, the hole appears black, but then so do clouds of gas which are so dense no light passes through them.

When Herschel gazed at the area using the infrared spectrum, the area remained black leading an astronomer to comment it was either immensely dense or something was wrong. Later, ground-based studies confirmed that the area is empty.

Tom Megeath, of Ohio`s University of Toledo, said: No one has ever seen a hole like this.

Yet scientists are not down hearted at having discovered, well...nothing, as they hope the hole in NGC 1999 will help them understand how stars use jets of gas to destroy the clouds of dust in which they are formed providing more understanding of how the universe was formed.
