well, as far as I know the ambient temperature of space is an average of ~-270 degrees Fahr. It seems the universe is filled with this "background radiation" that they say may have come from the big bang...or so it goes....I can't remember the exact number, but it was a definite number that they measured....it was in (I think) Astronomy magazine.

: if its infinitly large, won't it get infinitly cold the more you go out? Or does it stop once its out of any light from any stars. How cold could it get???
