Hunt for the Universe Origin

   2022    Sicence
Experts explore the elusive endeavor of determining the age of the cosmos. Understanding the age of the universe is fundamental to understanding the universe at all. It's at the heart of everything.

The age of the universe enables us to not only understand where we came from, but potentially, the fate of the universe, what will happen millions and billions of years from now.
The idea that the universe grew from a ball smaller than a pinhead is hard to understand, but figuring out when it happened sounds like it should be more straightforward. But it turns out, getting the age of the universe is pretty tricky.

Voyager, the most ambitious space mission in history. They're the first probes to truly explore half the planets in our solar system: Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. These went from dots of light in the sky, to real worlds. The Voyager missions have ventured far beyond where other probes have explored. They're the first spacecraft to taste interstellar space, exploring further than any human made spacecraft has gone before. They are the greatest space mission ever. The legacy of Voyager is our remnant, it is our memory. It is a sampling of humanity that is out there now among the stars. And if they last until the death of the Universe, as the final stars fade, and everything goes dark, they will be humanity's final statement: ‘We were here.’
