A fundamental principle and assumption of cosmology says that the universe is homogeneous and isotropic when viewed on a large scale. According to the cosmological principle, space might be flat, or have a negative or positive curvature in cosmological model. Positively curved universe denotes the closed universe and negatively curved universe denotes the open universe. Our universe type is flat because it expands in every direction neither curving positively nor negatively. We have observed that the progression of the universe is based on radiation and matter domination. In this paper we also have observed that future possible upper limit age of the universe is 9.4203×〖10〗^10 years which varies with density.
