If there is a black hole in the center of our
Universe, wouldn't the Sun get sucked in to the black hole?
There isn't actually a "center of the Universe" because the
Universe is expanding outward in all directions uniformly. You can see
this by thinking of a Universe which consists of ants living on the
surface of a balloon. As the balloon is blown up, the ant Universe
expands but they would not be able to point to a "center" of their
space. Our Universe has 3 dimensions of space, not 2 like the surface
of the balloon, but the situation is analogous (although much harder to
But we do believe, from very careful experimental data, that there is a
supermassive black hole in the center of our galaxy. And the answer is
no, we will not get pulled into it. The full answer to your question
may be found in the Q&A section of the Chandra website:
