What i can't understand is this, when they pointed the Hubble at an area of sky and left it there for days they claimed the farthest object was at the end of the universe some 13 billion years away,now it may be 13 billion years from earth but if they don't know the centre of the universe how do they know the universe is 13 billion years old, the edge could be farther from the centre than from the earth,perhaps i missed something somewhere?, i would have thought that to know the size of the universe you need to know the distance from the centre to the edge.

Obviously, I am the center of the Universe.

Oh, and 'great minds' do think alike; Saru and I both posted Dr. Plait's explanation. I do concede, however, that Dr. Plait's mind is considerably 'greater' than my own...despite my being 'the center of the Universe'.

Because the oldest light had to travel 13 billion years

This is a link to a theory about multiple universes existing outside our own. Which if true would mean there is an end to our universe and that would also mean that there would be a center somewhere, but we would have no way of calculating where that would be because our point of reference wouldn't allow for it (being that the scale is just oo big).

He hints at the 4th dimension existing "inside" or "within" the 3rd dimension. With unexplainable objects showing up on camera superimposed onto the recordings as though there were no distance between the "object" and the recording receptors inside the cameras, no matter what direction they move or how fast they go or the distance they are, I think this Phil Plait character could be on to something. But, since I'm not a physicist I couldn't say what he's referring to. Liked this video, favorited.

Considering the OP is over 3 yrs old I wouldnt be suprised if a centre to the universe has now been found.
