Built inside the severed head of a Celestial, Knowhere serves as a scientific station for the various races of the universe seeking to study events at the edge of the universe.

Served by a council made up of representatives of each race and, for a time, by Cosmo, the station's head of security, the station has faced numerous alien invasions, most of which have been fought off by Nova and the Guardians of the Galaxy, with the Luminals serving as sometime-annoyance to the Guardians, but often doing what they can to protect the station.

It served as a base of operations for the Annihilators.

Knowhere is the severed head of an ancient Celestial in free orbit, and served as a mining colony and trading outpost on the very outskirts of known space. Hundreds of years ago, the Tivan Group began sending workers in to mine the rare organic materials: bone, brain tissue, spinal fluid, etc. The mining continues to this day and due to its illegal and dangerous nature, Knowhere attracts criminals, outlaws, and rogues from across the galaxy. It is a lawless and unruly locale. Knowhere is also was home to The Collector's museum.[1]

The mining colony inside Knowhere

After escaping from the Kyln, the Guardians of the Galaxy arrived at Knowhere with the intention of selling the Orb to The Collector. After he explains that the Orb is a containment device for an object of immense power, his assistant Carina attempted to free herself from his servitude by using the orb but she and the Collectors museum were destroyed, releasing a dog and a talking duck in the process.[1]

Meanwhile Drax, obsessed with avenging the deaths of his wife and daughter, alerted Ronan to their presence. Ronan's forces attacked Knowhere while he and Drax faced each other in hand-to-hand combat. After overpowering Drax, Ronan took possession of the Orb.[1]
