Unfortunately your source is the Express (known BSers and often post click bait)...
...If you get a legit scientific source i'll be interested
"Put all of those ingredients together and you get an age of 14.5 billion years, with a residual uncertainty that makes the star's age compatible with the age of the universe," said Bond. "This is the best star in the sky to do precision age calculations by virtue of its closeness and brightness."
The new Hubble age estimates reduce the range of measurement uncertainty, so that the star's age overlaps with the universe's age — as independently determined by the rate of expansion of space, an analysis of the microwave background from the big bang, and measurements of radioactive decay.
Age 14.46 ± 0.8 (minimum 13.66) Gyr

Hey man just so you don't hate scientists check out Luke Barnes in physics.
It's good stuff you would probably enjoy it.
