Where is the centre of the universe and is there anything special about it?

I basically want to know if scientists know where it is. I've been out of school for some time. :-)

The normal, serious answer, to this question is that there is no center of the universe.

Scientists have placed were our solar system is in the Milky Way galaxie.

I would like to know where the Milky Way is in the universe.

I knew the answer to your question, but....
1-I forgot after a night of careless drinking.
2-I was kidnapped by the Daleks who promptly erased the knowledge from my feeble human mind

A worm hole is like a black hole because they both suck you in. :-)

Our solar system is "out in the boondocks" as it sits on one of the outward spirals of the Milky Way Galaxy. Years ago Carl Sagan mentioned that a wall of gas would consume our system in about 10,000 years. I certainly hope humanity can get off this rock in time. Thumbs up for the space program!

The article, "Delusions of centrality...," pretty much sums it up: not much is known. Oh, well. I thought there was an definate answer out there---out there in someone's book or class room.

Thanks, Brian.

PS: 10,000 years doesn't seem that far away. :-(
