Riding Light

Recommended Posts

In our terrestrial view of things, the speed of light seems incredibly fast. But as soon as you view it against the vast distances of the universe, it's unfortunately very slow. This animation illustrates, in realtime, the journey of a photon of light emitted from the surface of the sun and traveling across a portion of the solar system, from a human perspective.

 

My jaw dropped when counter resetted after Jupiter, whoa!

That is why we don't need to travel at light speed, but we need to be able to travel at ludicrous speed. :Tounge:
