I know of some massive voids in places where a brain should be, although I don't think they'd count as newly discovered. :lol:

There was a void found in Aug this year a billion miles across but this latest one makes it look like childsplay.
This one has serious knock on effects for theories relating to dark matter.

I 'll have a look thought the net tonight to see if I can find more info.
I think it was in Decembers s&t I saw it.
