Earth is dead center of the Spherical CMB [Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation] and of the 2dF Quasar, donut-shaped, graphs. No quasars near Earth; they all start virtually 2 billion light years away in EVERY direction. [A simple explanation is due to the fact that although Earth's local family of galaxies is moving at the Olympic speed of 600 kilometers per second, we are about the slowest object in the Universe - some 0.2% of the speed of light. Virtually all other galaxies are going much faster, leaving us crawling at the starting gate - virtually dead center. Due to the Big Bang explosion IN SPACE !] D. Tests proving general relativity limited to orbits of Mercury and other Earth bound satellites. [This does not prove homogeneity.] E. Einstein reported in his last autobiography that he could not ever apply general relativity to the whole field [Universe], only to gravitationally bound systems like the orbit of Mercury. Nor can anyone else do so today. [Again - this means NO homogeneity, therefore there are no known theoretical restrictions. Earth's location is unique!]
