Hi everyone,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Could someone tell me the details on how to calculate the age of the universe?

I've read online that it is about 13 billion years old but I can't find anywhere that tells me how they got to this number without confusing the hell out of me. Can anyone fill me in???

Thanks.
