The Age of an object is the cumulative time since it formed. Objects with a known age listed in the Universe Sandbox database (such as the Earth or Sun) will be created with the known age. Otherwise, the object's Age at the time it is added to the simulation is set to zero. The Age of any object will increase as time passes in the simulation.
