Though we live in the universe, there's still a heck of a lot we don't know about it. Even with that limited information, there are dozens of scientific theories about space and time to explain away the greatest mysteries of our intergalactic neighborhood. Not all of them are pleasant, though. Some of them are downright terrifying, and even more highlight just how alone we are out in this void we call space.
 

We know what you're thinking: they're just theories, why should I be creeped out? Well, these scientific theories about the universe have been devised by some of the greatest minds in the fields of cosmology and physics. These guys have a pretty good idea what they're talking about... and what they're talking about ain't pretty. So sit back and prepare to stare into the void.
