      It’s almost all nothing – space. The other bits are made of elements stuck together to make minerals, crystals and rocks.

      The universe is made up of a lot of empty space, but also a lot of matter which is made up of atoms. It’s amazing! It’s also constantly expanding, and already infinite!

      There is a lot of empty space but a lot of matter and energy as well! Wikipedia has a good explanation of what the universe is made up of! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Universe
