1.) The Universe can't be younger than the time it takes for light to reaches us.2.) The speed of light in a vacuum has been consistently measured to be just shy of 300,000,000 meters per second .3.) The distance light travels in a vacuum in one year is a lightyear.4.) The distance to Standard Candles can be measured accurately, and is used to measure distance to galaxies..5.) The distance to the standard candle in this measurement is 8.1 megaparsecs, or 26,420,000 lightyears .6.) Therefore, the Universe cannot be younger than 26,420,000 years.
