As I learned in college physics, if you think you have found a violation of the second law of thermodynamics, you have probably ignored an external force that caused the seeming violation. It seems so obvious in this story.

Although this phenomenon is not observed in nature, it could theoretically happen due to a random fluctuation in the cosmic microwave background permeating the universe.

Seems like that “empty space” wasn’t so empty after all. That empty space contained exactly the force that could make a seeming violation of the second law.
