English: A plot of the age of the universe as a function of some important cosmological parameters. The product of the age and the current Hubble parameter is a function of other cosmological parameters, describing the matter density, cosmological constant density, etc. Contours of this function are plotted as a function of the two most important parameters. The WMAP best-fit value (as of 2006) for these parameters is denoted by a box in the upper left, and the matter-only universe is denoted by an asterix in the lower right.
Un dibujo de la edad del Universo como función de algunos parámetros cosmológicos importantes. El producto de la edad y el parámetro de Hubble actual es una función de otros parámetros cosmológicos, describiendo la densidad de materia, la constante de densidad cosmológica, etc. Los contornos de esta función son dibujados como función de los dos parámetros más importantes. El vvalor WMAP más ajustado (hasta 2006) para estos parámetros está denotado por una caja en la esquina superior izquierda y la materia aislada se denota por un asterisco en la parte inferior derecha.
