Could our universe be 150 billion years old?

The Daily Galaxy blog posted a rather interesting article that questions the conventional age of the universe. Instead of the commonly held age of 13 billion years, a team of the British, American, and Hungarian astronomers say that there is evidence that the true age of the universe may be as long as 150 billion years instead.

Their evidence? The group states that there are 13 gigantic "rivers" of galaxies that are so huge and so well organized that it would take upwards of 150 billion years for these structures to form, based on their speed of movement and using the standard Big Bang cosmology.
