age of the universe ???

The universe is said to be about 14 billion years old,
however i disagree.
Since the universe is expanding at 72 KM per sec per megaparsec
(Equals one million parsecs (3.26 million light-years))

and 1 parsec = 3.26 light years

72KM per sec = 44.7387258411 miles per second

and light travels at 186,000 miles per second

then, at4157.47207816 mega parsecs, everything is moving away from you at the speed of light
since light CANT get back to you, this would limit the visable universe
at 13,553,358,974.8016 light years (away)

which is very close to the 14 billion term for the age of the universe

I think NOT
