The average colour of the universe
In 2001, Karl Glazebrook and Ivan Baldry determined that the average colour of the universe was a greenish white. It came to light just a year later that they corrected their own flawed analysis and reported that their survey of the light from over 200,000 galaxies averaged to a slightly beigeish white.
It turns out that wasn't even the focus of their studies but I guess sometimes you learn what life throws your way. Now, quite what that means for us I'm not quite sure. It's actually been called 'cosmic latte' which sounds better than beige. Saying that I had to work with 'sahara beige' as that was the closest colour match I could find. So there you have it.
