Cosmology, galaxy, redshift, age, Earth
An equation is derived that correlates the natural logarithm of the age of distant galaxies in the Big Bang Universe with the redshift of the light they emit. This equation is based on published data for their age. A simple analysis of the equation implies that it is possible that the Big Bang Universe is old as low as 4.7 Gy. That age is comparable to the age of the Sun and its planetary system and it is about three times younger than the age (about 13.8 Gy) of the Big Bang Universe adopted by the vast majority of cosmologists. This and other issues are briefly discussed.
