View full history
Countless ages ago a Celestial, whose true name is now forever lost to History, was murdered. By what it is not known but what is known is that it happened and the only evidence left of the crime is the Celestial's decapitated head which is slowly but surely riding the riptides of dying Universes towards the nothingness that lays beyond all of Creation.
It is believed that within the short span of a few decades Knowhere will be gone and all evidence of the murder itself will be lost.
The Space Station
Knowhere is used as a neutral base for many. It is governed by Gorani. The Head of Security is Cosmo. It is the base of operations for the Guardians of the Galaxy and the Luminals.
The station is massive and includes living quarters, medical facilities and a mainframe (known as the Continuum Cortex) that is extremely high tech, capable of instant teleportation.
Even though the Celestial is long dead, parts of it's mind still remain functional, as shown when Adam Warlock used the remainder to find the hidden Skrulls on board.
Following the events of The Inhuman/ Shi'ar Invasion of Knowhere, the long-dead Celestial has returned from the grave to deliver a message to Adam Warlock. The message was delivered from a alternate future from Starlord. All Celestials in all times are able to sense and communicate with one another. The message was that he is the only hope for the future.
In Other Media
Knowhere appeared in the Marvel Studios film Guardians of the Galaxy (2014). It is home to the Collector, who stores his wide array of creatures and objects from around the universe, and his assistant Carina. The Collector also runs mining operations which mine tissue and brain fluid from the Celestial and sell on the black market.
