Universe Might be Bigger and Older than Expected

Monday, August 07, 2006

New calculations based off a recalculation of the Hubble Constant show that the universe is actually much older and larger than previously thought. Instead of 14.3 billion years, our universe could be as old as 15.8 billion years and 156 billion light-years wide! How would one come upon this? Well, the Hubble Constant (mentioned earilier) is a number that measures the expansion rate and age of the universe. Recent findings show that the Trian gulum Galaxy is 15% farther away from the Milky Way (our Galaxy) than previously calculated. This means that, in turn, the Hubble Constant is 15% less than previously calculated. Confusing... yes... but interesting! Read the full story @ SPACE.com.
