Hey folks I'm totally knew to this forums but i assure you I'm a science junky (especially Physics)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I figured i post my first question here as it seemed pretty general so I'll give it a go

I've heard many statements about the universe being finite, in fact, it seems to be regarded as truth in most science media outlets

But I have also heard about our "light horizon" and if there are boundaries beyond this point clearly the universe could not be given the age 14.6 billion years.

I guess my question is what are the facts about the age of the universe and are scientist simply regarding our "light horizon" as an authority on the age of the universe.

More question to come and also help as I'm pretty knowledgeable as well

Thx and looking forward to this forum!!
