The Universe

Space (or to give it a more technical name, 'The Universe') is big. Really Big. It's also full of really surprising things like Babel fish and tea.

The history of the universe is terribly long and awfully difficult to understand, even in its simpler moments which are, roughly speaking, the beginning and the end.

Some believe the universe was sneezed out of the nose of the Great Green Arkleseisure. Others that it was created by God.

A race of supreme beings eventually decided to find out the ultimate answer to life the universe, and everything. The results of their research were far from conclusive.
