NASA Determines Average Color of the Universe
April 20, 2012
Using data culled from over 200,000 galaxies, NASA has determined the average hue of our universe. “Cosmic Latte,” as the color was christened in a naming contest, is the average shade of light emanating from the millions of stars around us.
Fascinatingly, universe has been slowly changing color for 10 billion years (apparently the renovation was delayed by a union dispute). According to NASA, the once-bluish hue has become much more red, “indicating that redder stars are becoming more prevalent.” Looks like Pantone can finally announce their hotly-anticipated Color of the Millennia.
