After the original universe formed, gravity gradually caused clumping. Blobs of matter that slowly congealed into galaxies and stars and then planets. All through the force of gravity and spin. But it turns out clumping was not as even as expected. That there is a much larger gap than anticipated.

“a region of the universe a billion light-years wide where everything – stars, dust, even dark matter – is simply missing.”

(personally, I consider Dark matter a cheat. A form of mythic matter that makes up the majority of the universe but cannot be found or verified. Theorized to make the equations work. I’d have flunked the subject if I’d much such a proposal in school.)
