The vast bulk of the universe is a void.

Actual matter comprises a miniscule fraction of the universe.

Even the interior of each atom is mostly emptiness.

(They found out that when they tried to zap the nucleus.)

So we are all "empty headed".

This is a superb website

Login, click on 'Astronomy' and away you go. Scroll down to 'Powell - An atlas of the Universe' for large scale maps, from the nearest 33 stars right up to the whole of the known universe. Note especially the 'one billion lightyears from the sun' map, which shows the known voids very well. Here's the direct link

Don't miss the rest of the site as well.
