Is the center of the universe very close to us?

We have no idea where the centre of the universe it and therefore we can not answer this question. The universe is expanding in all directions and we can not tell one direction from another.


If there was no universe or plants where did the big bang happen?

It happened in the center of the universe, for which it is still expanding on the universe.


Is there such a thing as the middle of the universe?

According to current theories in cosmology the universe is expanding and it has no center.


What is the speed of expending of universe?

The farther an object is from the earth, in any direction, the faster it is receding from us ... it looks just as if the earth is the center of the expansion. But wherever you are in the universe, that place would look to you as if it was the center of the expansion. The universe is already infinite, it has no boundary, but it's expanding. Are we confused yet ?


Does the big bang have a center?

theoretically, yes. There has to be an area that all the universe is expanding from. Scientists say that the universe is either expanding or contracting, and something cannot expand or contract unless expanding or contracting to/from a point. We can assume that the point is not on the side of wherever it is moving to/from. So it is not billowing out at an angle from somewhere. We can then assume that there is a center that is expanding or contracting. If there weren't a center, then scientists would be contradicting themselves anytime they say that the universe is expanding or contracting.


Does this expanding universe model mean that the milky way galaxy is the center of the universe?

No it does not. It is my basic understanding of this theory that the 'true center' of the universe would be mostly devoid of material.


What model of the origin of the universe believes that the universe expands?

The big bang would cause the universe to be expanding. The original explosion pushed all matter away from the center of the universe.


Are all galaxies moving away from ours because your galaxy is at the center of the universe?

Other galaxies are moving away because the universe is expanding, but we are not at the centre of the universe.


Is the universe all expanding outward from one central location?

Wherever you are located, it seems as if you are at the center of the expansion.


Is the sun the star at the center of our universe?

NO ... it is the center of our solar system. That is, all our local planets revolve around it. Our solar system revolves around the center of the galaxy, about once every 220 million years. As for the universe itself, it has no center. Imagine the surface of a soap bubble. Where is its center? The surface HAS no center, as our universe may be geometrically represented by the surface of an expanding sphere.


Where is the center of all things?

This is unknown. It is believed the universe is expanding but what we actually know about things outside of our own galaxy, or even our own solar system, is very limited. If it is expanding, than the center would be ever changing unless it is expanding in complete uniformity. Although it may be infinite so there would be no center.


Is there any star stopped orbitting the center of the galaxy?

Our universe is expanding constantly so there is nothing anywhere that is stopped.


Is universe moving towards us or away from us?

Neither. The definition of the 'universe' is: Everything that exists. And since that includes us, we are inside of the universe. The Universe is, however, thought to b expanding, and expanding faster at its outer edge. So the outer edge of the Univere is moving away from us. We, on the other hand, are moving away from the center of th e Universe (wherever that may be) so we are at the same time getting more distant from the center.


What does the red shift tell us about the universe?

It tells us that every galaxy, in every direction from us, is moving away from us, and the farther away from us it already is, the faster it's moving away from us. If you think about that for a while, it seems to say that the entire universe is expanding, and we happen to be at the center of it.

What did they think was the center of the universe after they thought the earth was?

In the 17th century, different people at different places started to accept the idea that the Earth was not the center of the universe. Copernicus had put forward a description with the Sun at the center of everything.Depending on what perspective you want to take, the center of the universe by some religious teachings is Mecca. One could say that the progression of beliefs was, Mecca, Earth, Sun, Milky Way.Now, we know that with an expanding universe and general relativity, one can say there is no place that is the center of the universe or every place is the center of the universe.


What is in the middle of the universe?

Just theorized; A SUPER-MASSIVE-MASSIVE-MASSIVE-MEGA-SUPER BLACK HOLE! That is resulted from the Big Bang, and will eventually draw all matter into it again (Very, Very Slowly). ANSWER: There is no center of the Universe. The Universe is constantly expanding in all directions meaning there is no center.


Does this expanding universe model mean that your Milky Way galaxy is at the center of the universe?

The Milky Way Galaxy is not at the center of the universe


What is at the center of the univerese?

the universe is isotropic & homogeneous, meaning there is no center. the observable universe has a center, which is the part of the universe we can see. we are at the center of the observable universe.


Was Copernicus's theory completely correct?

No, because he stated that the sun is at the center of the universe, but we have discovered that the universe is expanding. I think the main error in the theory was the fact that Copernicus believed that orbits must be circular.


Does the universe have an end or a center?

Some say there is no end to the universe, that it is just expanding and expanding. If the universe has a center, I don't think we will be able to find it. If the Universe started from a single point, the big bang, and expanded at a huge speed then surely it must have an "end" or a "boundry". Just like a ball being blown up, It starts small and gets bigger and bigger. To add to that, if the universe started at one point as the big bang theory suggests the there has to be a center or at least a starting point. We have found the end of the universe but under Edward Hubble's theory and the general belief of today it is still expanding outwards Note: if you are looking for a short concise answer for you astronomy class above is great but if you want to really get into the subject look up the two theories above. Hope i helped. - This still does not make sense, there HAS to be a "center" of the Universe under the big bang theory, even if it is a ball or balloon blowing up, there is still a CENTER or middle of the ball or balloon. Even if there are no "edges" of the universe there is still a geometrical point of center. If the universe started from one point in space and expanded in all directions there is a center even if it is a moving central point.
