Center of the Universe

Geo-centrism was the standard model of the Universe until the 16th century when Helio-centrism took over. More recently, we are told the Sun itself rotates around the center of the Galaxy and in fact the whole Universe expands like the surface of a balloon which means every single point in the Universe becomes its center if the frame of reference is relative to that point.

Even Earth, which makes Earth the Center of the Universe in that particular frame of reference. Will Geo-centrism make a comeback? Don’t count on it, but this old idea is not that wrong or far-fetched.
