    Re: space

    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?

    Re: space

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

    Do you want to say that the mystery is boundless or that the universe is boundless?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
