Over the course of your journey through No Man?s Sky?s infinite universe, you?re probably going to encounter your fair share of black holes. How are these classic space phenomena modeled in game? What do they do? Where do they lead to? Read on to find out, but be warned; some spoilers may be included.

What’s On The Other Side Of No Man’s Sky’s Black Holes

If you were hoping for an Interstellar-like fourth dimension on the other side, sorry to say but you?re going to be disappointed. In No Man?s Sky, black holes function essentially like massive teleporters, quickly shuttling you from one point of the galaxy to another.

First-hand accounts from players?on Reddit state that jumping through a black hole will always bring you 1,000 ? 2,000 light years closer to the center of the universe. Do keep in mind that Black Holes are one-way journeys. Going through one will deposit you at a random point in the galaxy, and the only way to get back to the system you were in is to trek there manually.

One player on Reddit said that after jumping through a black hole, he was over?11,000 light years away from the previous planet he was at. Some streamers have even reported jumps of over 30,000 light years. Make sure you sort out any business you have at your current location before making the jump. Entering a black hole will also inflict some damage to your equipment and deposit resources into your ship?s inventory.

That?s pretty much all there is to it. No Man?s Sky is still young, so it?s highly likely that there are several secrets still out there waiting to be discovered. Could there be more to black holes? You?ll have to keep playing to find out. If you discover the fourth dimension on the other side, be sure to let us know in the comments below.
