: Hi, : I have read that the Universe is somewhere between : 12 and 15 billion years old. Also, we can "see" bodies : that are 12 billion light-years from us; since the : light from these objects take that long to arrive for : us to "see" these objects and the objects are moving : away from us at a high rate of speed, shouldn't we take : into account, as the age of the Universe, the time it : took for the objects to get where they are as we "see" : them now and the time it takes for their light to reach : us now? Would this add to the 12 to 15 billion years : we estimate the age of the Universe to be? Hope I have : made this clear. Thanks, Tony Conca.
