What is in the center of our universe?
The universe, in fact, has no center. Ever since the Big Bang 13.7 billion years ago, the universe has been expanding. But despite its name, the Big Bang wasn’t an explosion that burst outward from a central point of detonation. The universe started out extremely compact and tiny.
Where exactly are we in the universe?
Well, Earth is located in the universe in the Virgo Supercluster of galaxies. A supercluster is a group of galaxies held together by gravity. Within this supercluster we are in a smaller group of galaxies called the Local Group. Earth is in the second largest galaxy of the Local Group – a galaxy called the Milky Way.
How do we know we aren’t the center of the universe?
Since the universe has no edge – it is unbound – it has no centre. Cosmologists usually liken the universe with the surface of a balloon. When you blow up a balloon the surface will expand, just as our universe is expanding.
