It is the notion that the distribution of matter in the universe is homogeneous and even isotropic when viewed from a large scale.


The two aspects of cosmological principle are:-

  1. The universe is homogeneous i.e. There is no preferred observing position in the universe.
  2. The universe is isotropic. which means there is no difference in the structure of the universe when we look at any direction.
