Did you miss a decimal point? 4.7 or 47 billion years?

And pray tell....where’s the weather report for the last 47 billion years. We want to be absolutely sure our global warming predictions are correct.

I believe the estimated age of the universe is only around 14 billion years.

You missunderstood. Current distance is 47B LY. The light has traveled for 13.5B LY.

That's not at all what was said. I think you need to watch the video again. Honest mistakes like this are why testimony in court is so rigorously cross examined, and why eye witnesses are so unreliable.

“You missunderstood. Current distance is 47B LY. The light has traveled for 13.5B LY.”

Nope, get a new calculator.

My estimates came out to 18 billion years.

But that was based on kind of a guess - that the average density of the universe was about one proton mass per 10000 cc’s volume.

I was happy at least that it was in the ballpark!

My guess this is because of the expanding universe. Perhaps an expert here has a better and more likely correct explanation?

Mark Walberg is fairly bright. I would expect that expression on the actor he's occasionally confused with, aka (in my best Team America voice) Matt Damon.

[ Did you miss a decimal point? 4.7 or 47 billion years? ]

Why not?.. either number is just an estimate..
4.7 or 47 or 477 billion is a linear assessment..
Time may not be lineal..

I can remember where and when I first the the deep space image of galaxies in the 1990s. It was my computer desktop for some time.

Whoever said that science discovery is a series of demotions for the hubris of man?

From the flat earth with the sun orbiting around it to being on the surface of an expanding bubble observing inconsequential forms matter and energy; in a few easy centuries.

You are confusing the current distance(47BLY) with the original distance(13.5BLY). The source and destination are traveling apart from each other, hence the distance now is 47BLY.

Listen to it again, it explains it.

You are correct. That’s why the 49 billion years sounded odd.

From Wiki:

The age of the universe is the time elapsed since the Big Bang posited by the most widely accepted scientific model of cosmology. The best current estimate of the age of the universe is 13.75 ± 0.13 billion years[1][2] (4.336 x 1017 seconds in SI units, or 13.75 Gigayears) within the Lambda-CDM concordance model.[3]

Non-linear time is a different issue. And you may well be right about that.

The question is one of measurement (using the speed of light as the standard of measurement), and possibly even the viability of the currently popular Big Bang Theory.

I was watching “the universe” last night and they were talking about the theory of the long slow end of the universe. Interesting stuff on “deep time” and cosmic decades.

Cosmic decades are kind of like the Richter scale with each cosmic decade being ten times the previous cosmic decades combined.

If eternity future is possible, why not eternity past?..
Eternity anything is hard for a creature to grasp ham-stringed in lineal time..

Now that is mind-bioggling.

Saves space on paper that would be taken up by zeroes.

Thanks KoRn. I would use this for an APoD or X-Planets ping, but there appears to be sectarian turmoil.
