How Old is the Universe? By Nola Taylor Redd, Space. This information helps astronomers determine the age of the universe. ESA and the Planck Collaboration. According to research, the universe is approximately They can determine the age of the universe using two different methods: Age limits The universe cannot be younger than the objects contained inside of it.
By determining the ages of the oldest stars, scientists are able to put a limit on the age. The life cycle of a star is based on its mass. More massive stars burn faster than their lower-mass siblings. The mass also affects the brightness, or luminosity, of a star; more massive stars are brighter.
They contained only hydrogen and helium, but through fusion began to create the elements that would help to build the next generation of stars. Scientists have been hunting for traces of the first stars for decades. Sobral was part of a team that identified a bright galaxy with evidence of Population III stars.
Dense collections of stars known as globular clusters have similar characteristics. The oldest known globular clusters have stars with ages that appear to be between 11 and 18 billion years old. The wide range comes from problems in pinpointing the distances to the clusters, which affects estimates of brightness and thus mass.
If the cluster is farther away than scientists have measured, the stars would be brighter, thus more massive, thus younger than calculated. It can be older, but not younger.
Expansion of the universe The universe we live in is not flat and unchanging, but constantly expanding. Thus, finding the expansion rate of the universe — a number known as the Hubble constant — is key.
A number of factors determine the value of this constant. The first is the type of matter that dominates the universe. Scientists must determine the proportion of regular and dark matter to dark energy.Toggle navigation.

Stephen Hawking (January 8, to March 14, ) was a British scientist, professor and author who performed groundbreaking work . Frank Castle was an honest ex-Marine with a family he loved.
But when that family was murdered, he became a vigilante with a uniquely brutal brand of justice. The reality of Earth has gone through eight different incarnations, all triggered by different instances of multiversal renewal, which constitutes in the destruction and re-creation of everything there is.
Little is known of most of Earth's incarnations. The fifth is said to have been a. This activity teaches students about the elements that compose our vast universe, including stars, planets, comets, and more!
Having been studying dark matter & energy and inflation, a holographic "universe" seems quite possible in the math of the SM and would fit into that world operating in a cloud of a dark matter.
