The collection of all submanifolds of R^n, smooth and closed and of a fixed dimension d, can be made into a topological space in a natural way. I will explain the significance of this space and discuss what is known and what is not known about its homotopy theoretic properties, based on recent joint work with Oscar Randal-Williams.
