Take a look at the cosmic microwave background radiation and ya can see a slight bias caused by the movement of the solar system.
Now Christopher “He’s Alive” Gordon at the University of Oxford and a coupla pals have worked out where we’re goin’ by estimating our motion relative to the CMB using Type Ia supernovae standard candles.
So which way are we headed? [Cue: drum roll] We’re a-trundlin and a-tootlin’ along at a sedate 475 kilometers per second in the direction of the constellation of Sextans in the northern hemisphere. (In galactic co-ordinates that’s l=238 and b=45.)
Ah’ve had a good look with the arXivblog binoculars and there don’t seem to be nothing of interest in that direction. Disappointing really.
