Hubble Law and expanding universe

  1. Dec 16, 2015 #1
    If the Universe were not expanding uniformly (i.e., at the same rate in all places), then would different places would see a different Hubble law than we do? And if If the extragalactic distance scale changed, would the Hubble constant change?

    Yes to both, though large deviations would require distance scales larger than anything we can observe.
