Organization: Astronomy Cast – http://www.astronomycast.com

Description: We did a wildly popular three part series about the center, size and shape of the Universe. But every good trilogy needs a 4th episode. This week we look at age of the Universe. How old is the Universe, and how do we know? And how has this number changed over time as astronomers have gotten better tools and techniques?

Bio: Fraser Cain is the publisher of Universe Today and Dr. Pamela Gay is a Director of Technology & Citizen Science, CosmoQuest, St. Louis. They team up to do Astronomy Cast, a weekly facts-based journey through the cosmos.
