Astronomers discover massive hole in universe

A huge hole in the universe nearly a billion light years wide has been discovered by astronomers.

The hole contains no stars, dust or gas, and is also missing the mysterious invisible material known as 'dark matter'.

It dwarfs other gaps, or voids, in the cosmos uncovered by scientists studying the universe at large scales.
