In a groundbreaking new study published in the journal Nature Astronomy, scientists have called into question the long-held belief that the universe is 13.8 billion years old. The current mathematical model, known as the “standard model of the Big Bang,” may not accurately estimate the age of the universe.

To investigate this possibility, researchers examined pairs of satellites in different galactic groups. Special attention was given to the most massive galaxies in each group to analyze the movement of satellite galaxies around them. The results were surprising – it was observed that a portion of the satellites move in the opposite direction to the larger galaxies, and in greater numbers than previously assumed.

These findings raise questions about the accuracy of the current model of the universe. If satellites do indeed orbit larger galaxies, it would make sense. However, when it comes to galaxies that are grouped together for a longer period of time, these results cast doubt on the current framework of the standard model.

Based on these new findings, scientists suggest that the universe may not be 13.8 billion years old as previously believed; it could be considerably younger. This would mean that the current mathematical model, which relies on measured parameters such as the rate of universe expansion and the distribution of galaxies, must be further studied and potentially revised.
