The reason it's a sphere around where "we" are is that the universe hasn't been around long enough for light from places further than that to reach us.

Hell yea so blonde bitches are right when they wear skintight shirts that say "I am the center of the universe".

Not really. We don't actually know where the center of the universe is. The center of the universe, going by the map, is where we are because that is how far we can see; as rich said, light from further on hasn't had time to reach us yet.

Also "center" doesnt' really mean anything -at least spatially how most people mean it. And yay for someone actually finding a decent map of the universe demostrating relative homogeneity and isotropy :)

Bullshit we are the center of the universe.

Actually what was the name of that planet in futurama that was 10 miles east from the exact center of the universe...
