Unfortunately, the answer is that we don't know.  At this time, there isn't really an answer.  Perhaps when humans are able to travel further from our own planet and see beyond our current telescopes, we will be able to answer such questions.  Right now, we do not have the technology to see where the center of the universe is.  We cannot see the entire universe and we really don't know our own placement within said universe.  It would be almost impossible to determine a center without knowing all the factors and variables involved in the process.  We simply do not have enough information to make such a determination at this time.

No! We know the centre of the universe. There are thousands of universe in multi-universe. In the multiuniverse, universe are formed when two universe collide with each other. So, our universe was formed when two cosmos colided.

 

 The touching point of the two cosmos is the centre of our cosmos. I can draw it but no tools to draw in the web!!!

I do not think there is any way we could know the center of the universe. How can we, when we do not even really know the full extent of the universe? Do you know where the universe ends? So if you don't know where the boundaries are, how can you identify the center? How would you even know?

In reply to #6 & #1. If the universe don't ends. IF IF!! If it is infinite in distance ( that never ends ) everywhere there is centre. the centre may be our earth, moon, prauxima centauri etc......

See the spherical universe that we imagine is a 3-Sphere different from our ordinary 2-sphere of daily life ! A 2-sphere has 2 angles on it, latitude and longitude, but a 3-sphere has 3-angles, and along the radius of this 3-sphere runs the time-axis ! Now let me explain the non-trivial point, 

Surface of this 3-sphere that is our universe actually contains all the matter and space itself... time runs perpendicular to this surface that is along the radius. Now this surface is not usual 2D surface but a 3D surface as its a 3-sphere and this surface is the universe that we can see around us, though it doesn't appear to us as a surface as we cannot sense 4-Dimension but we can only sense 3D. Nosw if the whole universe lives on the surface, then does this question has a menaning,"Where is the center of our Universe?" ? Of course not, because the centre of the universe is no-where on the surface and also everywhere on the surface, because the whole surface is the universe, nothing inside and nothing outside the sphere. 

 

So the center of the Universe is everywhere and no-where at the same time as the Universe is the surface of a 3-sphere embedded in 3+1 Dimension and Meaning of a centre of the surface staying over the surface is a meaningless question.

It is impossible to even speculate the center of the Universe because the very boundary of the Universe is unkown to us. Can you tell me the center of a circle if I do not show you the boundary? No. In this very way it is not possible to deduce the center of the Universe.

Yeah! It was a good answer.

 

We can't find the centre without its circumference.

how can you say that multiuniverse exits???????????it is just a mere theory.
