This question has been bugging me lately... I'm by no means well endowed with math-fu, but the theoretical side of this stuff is really cool to me. Basically, given the background radiation that we can observe in the sky, we think that the universe is roughly 14.6 billion years old. Now, from what google tells me, the Milky Way Galaxy is about 13.2 billion years old. Given that the big bang started from an infinitely small point (but a point nonetheless) shouldn't we be slightly off from the center of our observable universe? I mean, we'd have about 1.4 billion more years worth of light to look at in one 'direction' as opposed to the other... However, the research I've done puts the Milky Way (more specifically the Virgo Supercluster) at the center of the observable universe... Am I completely misunderstanding something?
