    Default space

    I don't know how to correct the following sentence. Please help me.

    The universe is full of space and every space stands for different time.

    Are you talking about the fact that light travels at a fixed speed, so that when we look at areas of the universe that are farther away we are seeing them farther in the past?

    I don't think "full of" is the right wording. Since the space is (mostly) empty.
