If the universe really is expanding then why can we not see energy still expanding out from the center?

Scientists say its still expanding...so why is the center not continually spitting out energy ;left over from the big bang

  • The center does not spit anything out, because it was not an explosion. It's an expansion.

    The farther something is from "the center" the faster it is moving. Which means everything farther out than us is moving faster than us; and we are moving faster than everything closer to the center than us; and everything the same distance from the center is moving sideways away from us. So, EVERYTHING appears to be moving away from us.

  • That energy has been spent making Stars, Planets, Galaxies and the Universe as it is there is no sign of the centre, it is long Gone
    Just like some being 12 Billion Light Years away would be asking the same question
    That Energy is all around us in the Cosmic Background Radiation and it is the same everywhere
    To put it simply, we need Energy to Move, to be
    Just like the Universe needed Energy to begin
    Energy is never lost, just Utilised

  • The universe is 4 dimensional, therefore the center exists in space & time at the Big Bang. We do see energy emanating from that center, it's called the Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation. That's the remaining energy of the Big Bang, and it's visible in the microwave region of the electromagnetic spectrum.
