How big is space? Just when scientists think they have an answer, new evidence crops up to suggest otherwise. In 2016 the BBC published an article online with the latest findings suggesting that the galaxy is 2.54 million light years away. Considering that bit of information, there are bound to be some bizarre theories about space circulating.

11 – Coming soon
This could well be the universe’s nemesis, and it’s aptly named The Death Star, mind you, this one has nothing to do with Star Wars. This theory was introduced by Daniel Whitmore and Albert Jackson, who have said that this dwarf star is orbiting the sun and whenever it goes close to the Oort cloud, will send comets plummeting down to earth, basically destroying everything in its path. Fortunately, this is only supposed to happen very 26-million years, so I think we’re safe for a while.
10 – Cold as ice
Possibly a more believable theory is that the universe will eventually end by becoming a solid block of ice, called the Big Freeze or Big Chill. Many support this theory. The universe will no longer expand, entropy will set in, the stars and planets will cease to exist and life will no longer be supported. Again, it’s only speculated to happen in trillions of years! You’re safe, for now!
9 -Man on the moon
Yes, I know that’s old news – but this theory says we’ve managed to achieve so much more that that! UFO theorists believe that we’ve managed to send astronauts to Serpo, a planet that is 37 light years away. This was said to be a thank you from grateful aliens who were saved when their spaceship crashed in Roswell in 1947.
8 – Water, Water Everywhere!
Here’s another theory involving water, and it dates back to the 8th century BCE, where the archaic Greeks believed earth was surrounded by a river called, “Ocean”. These waters formed a shield around the Earth, protecting it from the limitless expanse beyond those waters. The ancient Greeks were said to fear whatever was located way out there in space, and felt better off knowing they were protected by this body of water.
7 – Can only be aliens
Surely there is no other explanation for the lights that were photographed by Dawn, a NASA probe that has been orbiting Ceres. Those that love a good conspiracy theory believe that those bright lights are a signal being sent out from an alien base. A more plausible theory is that it’s just metallic salts, minding their own business, reflecting the sunlight. Yea, sounds a bit boring – let’s stick to the friendly greeting by the aliens.
6 – Just a theory
So we’ve looked at the possibility that our universe will freeze up and everything that we know will no longer exist, but what about this theory? The universe is going to just rip apart, and it will be caused by dark energy that is increasing all the time. The energy will culminate and lead to a ripping effect of astronomical proportions, causing entire galaxies to be ripped apart.
5 – The answer to life’s questions
Could be sitting on Saturn’s North Pole. There you will find a massive anomaly, which is leaving people pretty confused. The Eye of Saturn has been studied by many, and with its unusual shapes and patterns, has led some to believe that is the place where a mythical power sits, controlling life as we know it.
4 – World War 3
But not here on earth, this war could take place in space and there are theories that claim NASA isn’t out in space for discovery purposes like we’ve been led to believe, but they are in fact building a fleet of space warships that are literally orbiting earth as I speak. There is some reference to a leaked document containing some information about something called the Solar Warden Program, which we mentioned earlier when we spoke about hacker, Gary McKinnon.
3 – It’s make believe
This is a rather well-known theory, but it’s so crazy, it’s definitely worth mentioning again. It says that the moon landings were a complete hoax, and NASA staged the whole experience to beat Russia to the moon. Claims state that radiation from the Van Allen radiation belt would kill a human, so that’s flaw number one, and number 2 was the fact that there is no wind on the moon, so why on earth did the flag flutter?
2 – A sneak peek
This warped theory has people believing that NASA went on a mission to protect the moons of Jupiter as a predecessor to their Lucifer Project, which is a future plan to convert Jupiter into another sun. As of today, that project hasn’t taken off, but who knows?
1 – All-time favorite
I think that if people wanted the answer to this one, they should just ask him! Former President, Barack Obama has allegedly been on a trip to Mars in the 1980’s and has successfully made contact with Martians. It’s just such a shame that he’s keeping this space mission top-secret.
