Where is the centre of the universe?
Monday, November 3, 2014
There is no centre of the universe! According to the standard theories of
cosmology, the universe started with a "Big Bang" about 14 thousand million
years ago and has been expanding ever since. Yet there is no centre to the
expansion; it is the same everywhere. The Big Bang should not be visualised as an
ordinary explosion. The universe is not expanding out from a centre into space;
rather, the whole universe is expanding and it is doing so equally at all places, as far
as we can tell.
