The universe is about 13 billion years old, slightly younger than previously believed...
Amazing...13 billion? I could swear, it doesn't look any older than 8 billion. Really.
Really! It's looking pretty good for its age, too, isn't it? It's old news, however. What they're seeing happened over 7,000 years ago, the news is just now reaching us. (grin)
". . . between 13 and 14 billion years ago."
You would thank that, given the utter and sheer brilliance of these "experts," that they would be able to get the age of the earth closer than to within 1,000,000,000 years.
