The Universe is 13.7 billion years old, give or take.
That means our planet has been around for a little over a third of the history of the Universe.
The Sun is about half way through its life as a star, and will become a planetary nebula in about 6.5 billion years, and a white dwarf in about 9.5 billion years, more or less. At the end of that time, the Sun will have lasted well over half the age of the Universe.
Sarabeth’s has been around for more than a third of the age of myself, and more than twice the age of The Kid.
Better hurry over.
