Why isn't the expansion of universe seen locally

Posted by dogrock on Mar 14, 2002 at 19:50

Scientists have explained the accellerated expansion of the universe as like a rubber sheet (or rubber ball) being stretched out evenly at all point and in all directions, everything moving further away in a relationship. At what point does this expansion stop locally. Why aren't the planets in our solar system moving away from each other, where does the measurement of this expansion stop locally. If anyone can throw some light on this.
