In a 2002 paper published in the The Astrophysical Journal, Johns Hopkins University astronomers, Karl Glazebrook and Ivan Baldry, after analysing light from 200,000 galaxies described the average color of the universe as beige-ish white. It was soon assigned the hex code #FFF8E7 with RGB values (255, 248, 231).

The name of the color was to be decided after a poll. Though "Cappuccino Cosmico" received the highest votes, the scientists finalised Cosmic Latte because latteo means "milky" in Italian, the native language of Galileo, the first modern astronomer!
