# Effect of space time relativity on the age of the universe?

So we all heard about the twins paradox to explain einstein's time space relativity.

Wikipedia Quote :" In physics, the twin paradox is a thought experiment in special relativity involving identical twins, one of whom makes a journey into space in a high-speed rocket and returns home to find that the twin who remained on Earth has aged more. This result appears puzzling because each twin sees the other twin as traveling, and so, according to a naive application of time dilation, each should paradoxically find the other to have aged more slowly. "

So what if the universe has been travelling at varying speeds (increasing or descreasing), wouldn't this effect our measurements on age of the universe?

• With respect to what would the Universe (all there is) have a relative motion? – Alfred Centauri Jun 22 '13 at 1:18
• relative motion to its past? for example if im moving at 10kmh today and at light speed tomorrow, then how much i age will change per day. So if you are measuring my total age by how I aged today + how many years have to pass so I can become what I look like. It would result wrong – Ahmet Yildirim Jun 22 '13 at 9:30

If the universe were non-homogenous, you'd have a point. But the key point of Robertson-Walker cosmology is that you fit the data very well by having a universe that is very nearly spatially homogenous. This means that, if each observer clicks of $T$ amount of time since the big bang, then they will all agree that there is no special point in the universe (like a center or an edge), and will all agree on the general geometry and shape of the whole universe.
