This is a conceptual representation of the Big Bang that theoretically created space and time 13.7 billion years ago. The image is inaccurate in that the Big Bang was an 'explosion' of space, not in space, so it would not have been possible to regard...

Black Hole Space Warp
Black holes are objects so massive and compact that nothing can escape from them, including light. They distort the spacetime around them, somewhat like a heavy ball on a stretchy rubber sheet, as this conceptual illustration shows
Keywords: black hole, cosmology, spacetime
This is a conceptual representation of the baby universes idea: where our Universe is linked to an infinite number of others via bridges called wormholes, and each of these other universes is itself linked to others.
Keywords: wormhole, black hole, cosmology, multiverse, universe, spacetime
What have we here? The universe in a glass ball, resting on a table. I got the idea from the novel of the same name by Gregory Benford. It tells the story of some scientists who inadvertently create a wormhole in a laboratory.

Artwork of the supercluster, Laniakea (yellow), which includes our own Milky Way. Scientists at the University of Hawaii have examined the velocities of galaxies in unprecedented detail, showing in the process that Laniakea is much bigger than origin...

The above is a schematic showing the Universe on the largest possible scale. Each red dot is not just a galaxy, but an entire cluster of them, often containing thousands of individual members. They are strung out to form long filamentary structures. ...

This is a conceptual representation of the eternal inflation theory – infinite bubble universes emerging constantly in inflationary space. Each separate universe will have its own physical laws, which may not be anything like those in our universe,...

Our Place in Space
How do we fit in compared to everything in the Universe? This diagram, created for the children's book Insiders: Space, attempts to enlighten you. It shows the Earth's place in the Solar System, then zooms out to show where the Solar System is locate...

Artwork conceptualising the idea of quantum foam - a description of subatomic spacetime turbulence at distances on the order of the Planck length. On these scales, the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle dictates that particles and antiparticles can com...

Scale of the Universe
This image shows some of the things that are in the Universe arranged in order of scale – although not actually to scale. In this diagram you can see (bottom left) subatomic particles, an atom, a molecule (of DNA), red blood cells, a human, the Ear...
