Experts at NASA claim the universe is not black as you might expect - but rather a rather dull shade of beige.
Space boffins have found that if you were to average out the light emitted by galaxies currently analysed, you would be left with the dull-looking colour.
NASA say the shade is constantly changing and has become much less blue over the past 10 billion years (so not a quick change then) indicating that redder stars are becoming more prevalent.
It has now been dubbed "Cosmic Latte" after being discovered by astro-physicians Karl Glazebrook and Ivan Baldr.
You will notice it bares a striking resemblance to the shade of paint used in TV home makeover shows... suggesting that Sarah Beeny could be our supreme creator.

It's kind of cool when you're randomly thinking about a person and then almost in that same moment they text you or call you. I had that happen a few minutes ago, but it was Roxanne asking me through a text if I had ever heard of George Esquivel shoes? I haven't heard about him but quickly googled him. These are some of the images from his site. She said he has a four page spread in Flaunt, to which I felt a tinge of guilt and laziness that I really don't keep up with fashion magazines as sometimes I think I should. All in all, his shoes are pretty dope and reading an interview online with him he got into shoemaking while merely apprenticing for a local shoemaker. It's nice to see other handmade shoes no matter what. But whether 5 or 500 people make shoes, the things that people choose to create when the medium is in their hands is almost always unique. In his online interview he'd emphasize the fact in each shoe he tries to recreate a worn in aesthetic that is inspired by the various aged and dinged up personal affections he surrounds himself with. I think his use of texture is really alluring.. though the only thing I don't like is the shape of the toe which just looks like major toe bock ( the curling of the toe area when laces are pulled way too tight in a sneaker ). But in a traditional sense of men's bespoke shoemaking that curling is intentional and common. I've said to myself that this year with me moving into a new apartment, and finally getting a legit workspace together, you will hopefully be seeing more leather productivity on my own end.
RAINN WILSON PRACTICES A FAITH I'VE NEVER HEARD OF
The Bahá'í Faith is a monotheistic religion founded by Bahá'u'lláh in nineteenth-century Persia, emphasizing the spiritual unity of all humankind. There are an estimated five to six million Bahá'ís around the world in more than 200 countries and territories.
In the Bahá'í Faith, religious history is seen to have unfolded through a series of divine messengers, each of whom established a religion that was suited to the needs of the time and the capacity of the people. These messengers have included Abraham, Buddha, Jesus, Muhammad and others, including most recently Bahá'u'lláh. In Bahá'í belief, each messenger taught of the next, and Bahá'u'lláh's life and teachings fulfill the end-time promises of previous scriptures. Humanity is understood to be in a process of collective evolution, and the need of the present time is for the gradual establishment of peace, justice and unity on a global scale.
