  1. Very well done!
    I have a curiosity… is everything expanding away from us at relatively the same speed, or are things expanding away from us at different rates? I would assume at different rates, depending upon numerous variables, but an overall pattern must have been observed. Basically what I am trying to get a grasp on is thus: if everything is moving away from US, ie, are we are the center of the expansion? Our solar system being the starting point of the entire universe seems a little bit self centered, so to speak.
    Again, very very well done!
