If space was crumpled

[ #20829 ]
Dear Log,

«Last year, a New York team speculated that the universe might really be quite small, but shaped like an endlessly repeating set of dodecahedrons or soccer balls, so that a journey of 60bn light years in one direction would bring a traveller back to Earth, like a circumnavigation of the globe. Light travels in a straight line through space, but if space was crumpled or folded back on itself, galaxies might be quite close. »
