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

I was pondering the age of the universe and reading about how it was calculated, but then I began questioning something.

Two scenarios, BIG IF. (I know, it's a big IF. I'm sure I'll get a lot of comments about how it's not possible, or improbable. I get it. but...) IF:

-We determine the exact size of the universe in both of these scenarios-

1. The universe is "almost exactly" the size of the observable universe. (yes I know that's qualitative not quantitative, but you know what I mean)

2. The universe is "approximately" 100 times the size of the observable universe. (see scenario 1 comment)

Ok, so this begs the question: How do these two scenarios differ in the universe's age FROM 13.73 billion years?

Would this alter the hubble constant possibly?

Thanks.
