Leave it to a couple of white guys...

...to boil down the color of the entire universe to sort of pinkish white.

With its jewel-like star clusters, swirling galaxies and orange Suns, pictures of the universe are usually impossibly beautiful and brightly coloured.

But as Nasa has pointed out the real colour of outer space would not look out of place on an office wall: it is beige.

After studying the colour of light emitted by 200,000 galaxies scientists have combined them to produce the colour, they have dubbed 'cosmic latte'.

Other names suggested for it were 'univeige' and 'skyvory'.
