Uniform Accelerating Expansion of Space/

All indications are that the dark energy or cosmological constant or whatever is driving the acceleration of the expansion is uniform in space, and also has been constant or nearly so over a long period of time. The other stuff (our type of matter and dark matter) is not uniformly spaced, as you can see at night. So that leads to a little bit of unevenness in the acceleration, since those types of matter cause deceleration. On a large scale, however, even matter seems uniform, so the acceleration is nearly uniform.
