Mysteries of hyperspace in Star Wars?

In summary, the Star Wars YT-1300 Complete Reference Manual mentions that there are some aspects of hyperspace that remain a mystery, beyond what is acknowledged by competent astrophysicists. These mysteries may include plot elements reserved for future use and areas of the galaxy inaccessible by FTL travel. Despite the non-scientific nature of the franchise, these elements have been used in various stories and can be enjoyed by creating one's own interpretation within the universe.

I was reading the Star Wars YT-1300 Complete Reference Manual and it mentioned that their are some aspects of hyperspace that remain a mystery aside from those well-established facts acknowledged by all competent astrophysicists.

What could be one of the main mysteries? I can’t think of any.

Ehh? What do competent astrophysicists have to do with it? You realize this is science fiction, right? Aspects that remain a mystery would include anything that Lucas didn't need to/bother to write about.

I was hoping someone would approach it from an in-universe point of view. That’s what this sub forum is for

That means they reserved some possible plot items to be exploited later.

If you look at the map of the SW galaxy, almost half of that is not accessible by FTL and it also has an outer boundary too.
Both hyperspace 'mystery' were used as basis of some stories already.

I suggest you stop being bothered by their non-science scifi. Just make up your own corner there and be happy with it.
