    If we found older and more distant galaxies, that would mean that the universe is older then 13,8 billion years, right, i mean it is possible ?

    It is possible - although it would overturn a lot of established science and therefore earn a Nobel Prize.

    The Universe doesn't like it when you ask her, her age.

    If we could see back farther than we do now with better telescopes they might see older galaxies one day but for now the oldest Is the 13.8 billion that we can see.

    13.8 is as best we can see now so it is a fact that is the age as of now.
