RE: Light from the past

in StemSocial2 months ago

This is a great article. I did know about light was how we could see but I didn't really think it was about the reflections.

It sure is interesting that the sun we see is over 8 minutes ago but I guess it definitely makes you think how far things in the sky. I really do wonder if we will develop technology that can move at the speed of light because its the fastest speed that I know about.

It's something difficult to do, Albert Einstein in the theory of relativity stated that anything that has mass cannot travel in a vacuum as fast as light. Scientists have been trying to accelerate neutrinos, the lightest particles in the universe, to exceed the speed of light but they've failed

It would be amazing that one day humans succeeded in creating technology at the speed of light, we only need 1.28 seconds to get to the moon😅

Btw, NASA has released an animated video about how to travel using technology at the speed of light, you may be interested to watch it.

Thanks for the video. It sure answers quite a bit of the questions I have. There are just too many problems that we have yet to solve.
