Our planet, even our galaxy, is like tiny speck of sand on an immense ocean beach, perhaps without end.
In 1996 astronomers pointed the Hubble Space Telescope at what appeared to be absolutely nothing and left it there for 10 days; and then, in 2004, they did it again for 11 days.  This time they pointed the Hubble toward another seemingly black, empty “nothing” area.
A narrator describes what Hubble revealed in those areas of nothingness.  they made the images Hubble recorded into a 3-D presentation.  Remember the speed of light is 186,000 miles/second.  when light travels at that speed for an entire year, that is equal to one light-year.  the meaning of what Hubble found is beyond comprehension.
