Riding Light

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.

  3. Hi superb website! Does running a blog such as this take a large amount of work?
    I’ve absolutely no understanding of programming however
    I had been hoping to start my own blog in the near future.
    Anyhow, if you have any recommendations or tips for new blog owners please share.
    I understand this is off topic however I simply wanted to ask.
    Kudos!
