thinking about hubble's law, was it taken into consideration that our galaxy is moving too as space expands or are we at the center of the expanding universe?
Hubble notice that the light coming from these galaxies was shifted a little towards the red end of the spectrum due to the Doppler effect (known as “redshift”), which indicated that the galaxies were moving away from us. Hubble law related to this, which is relation between distance to the galaxy and its precessional velocity determined by red shift
H is Hubbles constant and r is distance.
usually referred to as the "metric expansion" of space, ie the universe is not expanding "outwards" into pre-existing space, space itself is expanding, defined by the relative separation of parts of the universe. ie universe is expanding into space in between galaxies.
