Universe Older And Slower Than Previously Thought
The information comes from the European Space Agency’s Planck satellite mission. The universe is 80 million years older than previously thought.
Planck’s high precision data reveals a Universe very much as we have grown used to, albeit with some new twists. It’s older, its age being revised to 13.796 billion years, or about 13.8…

Given that dark energy is responsible for pushing space apart (read: accelerate cosmic expansion), the cosmos seems a bit slower than we thought, although still going strong.
