[Relativity from Einstein to black holes, Gerald E(found at downtown santa cruz library in the childrens science section, apparently according to amazon no longer sold under that name) Tauber p27 ""Today we know that the sun is just one of millions of stars-and not a particularly large and bright one at that - in the Milky Way, which in turn, is just one of many, many galaxies in the universe. There is no particular center to the universe. We can choose any convenient coordinate system; whether it be the walls of a room, the streets in a city, or Earth itself-just so long as we understand that the choice has been one of convenience and not necessity.""] Relativity (Venture Books)
