After boredom with Pluto became unbearable, New Horizons spacecraft moved on to mess with us again. After rendering out light sources from known galaxies and even those from theorized stars, astronomer Rod Lauer of Arizona’s National Optical Astronomy Observatory and his people still found light 4 billion miles away from Earth.
Astrophysicist Michael Zemkov gave a palms to the sky emoji as he told NPR, "They're saying that there's as much light outside of galaxies as there is inside of galaxies, which is a pretty tough pill to swallow, frankly."
It just doesn't end. Ever. And that's cool.
