This was such a fun commission! By the time the yarn was made I could just imagine a little tardis whizzing through the scene.
The vast, empty void. The vacuum of space.
Apart from the stars.
But the rest of space is empty.
Except for the planets and moons and comets and asteroids.
But there’s nothing else.
Apart from the nebulae, showing off, all blues, pinks, reds and greens.
And apart from the galaxies, some spiral-armed and twisting together with the inky blackness.
But aside from all that … empty.
If you don’t count the neutrinos and photons and muons and …
But otherwise, nothing there.
(Except, maybe, dark matter?)
Even black holes are thought to emit radiation.
So really, what is there to explore?
What adventures could you possibly have?
