As they stared into the utter and complete silence of the gaping blackness, they felt themselves impelled forward. Still clinging tightly together, they sped through shimmering gas clouds, passed tiny asteroids, plummeted into planets at first small and distant then suddenly vast, their surface colours vivid, their cores intensely bright as they plunged through them, through the blinding extremes of stars, propelled into the blackness, emerging unhurt into the unheeding, uninterested, uncaring dark of a different dimension.
In this nothingness, one star appeared, its face velvet, its approach speedy beyond understanding. It exploded before it reached them. This universe disappeared.
