The recent supernova, SN2016adj, first appeared in the skies here on Earth on February 8 earlier this month. It is located in the nearby galaxy, Centaurus A which is about 11 million light years away from us.
Since we know when the light from this supernova first showed up does this single event set a minimum age of the Universe at at least 11 million years old?
Dates and Dating I think.

Anyone so limited that they can only spell a word one way is severely handicapped!
