      If the universe is infinitely big, then probability says that anything that is possible WITHIN the laws of physics must exist somewhere!

      It all depends on how you define ‘shouldn’t exist’. Maybe we just don’t understand yet how big and complicated the universe is. Even the laws of physics become a bit twisted and strange when you’re thinking about really huge things and really tiny things.

      Scientists just have to have an open mind about what is possible, and how they interpret what they see!

      We hold that the laws of physics have to work everywhere. So anything is possible that obeys the laws of physics.
