    In all seriousness the new date is 1.5% younger than the old one... so... not that big of a deal?
    Fairly confident the new date was within the original margin of error. The telegraph loves hyperbole.

    woopdee-fuckin-doo.

    I just found out my mom is 41, I though she was 42. That doesn’t make her a “mere youngster.”


    this is what we invest money in?

    A more apt example would be thinking your mom was 67 and learning she was 66.

    Losing 60 million years is fairly substantial in geological time.

    It's not incredibly dramatic, it's just a more accurate age of the earth. Might help geologists get that third decimal point more accurate. I posted this mainly because of the ridiculous title and the god awful sentence structure of the article.

    70 million years isn't that much on a cosmic time scale, just a slight miscalculation
