In accepted theory, Hubble expansion only operates at the largest scales, i.e., the intergalactic level. However, this is a theoretical conclusion, which can be rebutted with other theoretical considerations. More significantly, increasing observational data and other evidence, particularly within the Solar System, point to universal expansion operating on all scales where gravitation, as opposed to electronic interaction, is the dominant force. Local Hubble flow has implications for current theories of tidal drag as well as both the early evolution of the Solar System and its long-term future. Expansion is also expected to operate on the structure of galaxies, but it is unclear whether this has any impact on the dark matter problem.


Dans la théorie acceptée, l'expansion de Hubble ne fonctionne qu'aux plus grandes échelles, c'est-à-dire au niveau intergalactique. Cependant, il s'agit d'une conclusion théorique, qui peut être réfutée par d'autres considérations théoriques. Plus, important encore, l'augmentation des données d'observation et d'autres preuves, en particulier au sein du système solaire, indiquent une expansion universelle opérant à toutes les échelles où la gravitation, par opposition à l'interaction électronique, est la force dominante. Le flux local de Hubble a des implications pour les théories actuelles de la traînée des marées ainsi que pour l'évolution précoce du système solaire et son avenir à long terme. On s'attend également à ce que l'expansion agisse sur la structure des galaxies, mais on ne sait pas si cela a un impact sur le problème de la matière noire.


Key words: Hubble Flow; Recession; Planets and Satellites; Solar Expansion; Tidal Drag; Gravitation.
