The Telescope to End All Telescopes

After a lifetime of work, the physicist finally invented a telescope that could see the very edge of the universe. She joyfully high-fived her robot assistant, Darwin.

Would she see God at the edge of the universe? Would she see nothingness? Or some space with physical laws so different from our own that merely gazing into it would drive her mad? All were thrilling possibilities!

She peered through the eyepiece and froze in confusion.

There, at the edge of the universe, stood a sandy haired woman in a lab coat, watching her through a telescope.
