These 3 things go "faster" than the speed of light. How's that even possible? Subscribe: http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCj1gf... ↓Want more info?↓ More about the experiment: Marissa Giustina’s research: http://arxiv.org/abs/1511.03190 Advanced scientific note about Doppler: If there is a light moving away from you at constant velocity in static flat (Minkowski) space-time, no matter how red it is, you will never conclude it is going faster than light. But, here I am discussing the conclusions one might come to if you mistakenly use Doppler in the context of the curved space-time of the universe (where there is expansion). Interpreting the huge redshift as a result of the doppler effect, could make one think that galaxies we see are moving away at speeds approaching light speed. And since what we are actually seeing is light from those galaxies from billions of years ago, and given that the universe is expanding, you might be tempted to say that they have since "accelerated" to faster than the speed of light. You might go further and say that there are more distant galaxies that we can't see which are moving away even faster. So you might conclude there are galaxies moving faster than light in the universe. But the redshift isn't from doppler and this "acceleration" of the expanding universe isn't actually causing a true increase in velocity. Sometimes astronomers do say there is a faster than light "recession speed" by pretending the expansion of the universe is causing distant galaxies to move away from each other at a corresponding velocity, but that's misleading. In general relativity, you can actually have an increase in space between objects without causing a corresponding increase in the relatives velocities of those objects.

Light Speed : 299,792,458 M/S 300,000 KM/S 1,079,252,848 KM/H 670,616,629 MP/H RED SIDE SHOP STORE https://goo.gl/hVMWE9 MUSIC (3 Background Music Mixed By Me) 1-Give us Time - Dark Ambient Music (CO.AG Music) 2-Im walking through the dust - Dark Ambient Background Music(CO.AG Music) 3-Kevin MacLeod ~ The House of Leaves (EricArchive) WIKIPEDIA: The speed of light in vacuum, commonly denoted c, is a universal physical constant important in many areas of physics. Its exact value is 299,792,458 metres per second (approximately 300,000 km/s (186,000 mi/s). It is exact because by international agreement a metre is defined to be the length of the path travelled by light in vacuum during a time interval of 1/299792458 second. According to special relativity, c is the maximum speed at which all conventional matter and hence all known forms of information in the universe can travel. Though this speed is most commonly associated with light, it is in fact the speed at which all massless particles and changes of the associated fields travel in vacuum (including electromagnetic radiation and gravitational waves). Such particles and waves travel at c regardless of the motion of the source or the inertial reference frame of the observer. In the special and general theories of relativity, c interrelates space and time, and also appears in the famous equation of mass–energy equivalence E = mc2. The speed at which light propagates through transparent materials, such as glass or air, is less than c; similarly, the speed of electromagnetic waves in wire cables is slower than c. The ratio between c and the speed v at which light travels in a material is called the refractive index n of the material (n = c / v). For example, for visible light the refractive index of glass is typically around 1.5, meaning that light in glass travels at c / 1.5 ≈ 200,000 km/s (124,000 mi/s); the refractive index of air for visible light is about 1.0003, so the speed of light in air is about 299,700 km/s (186,220 mi/s), which is about 90 km/s (56 mi/s) slower than c. For many practical purposes, light and other electromagnetic waves will appear to propagate instantaneously, but for long distances and very sensitive measurements, their finite speed has noticeable effects. In communicating with distant space probes, it can take minutes to hours for a message to get from Earth to the spacecraft, or vice versa. The light seen from stars left them many years ago, allowing the study of the history of the universe by looking at distant objects. The finite speed of light also limits the theoretical maximum speed of computers, since information must be sent within the computer from chip to chip. The speed of light can be used with time of flight measurements to measure large distances to high precision. Ole Rømer first demonstrated in 1676 that light travels at a finite speed (as opposed to instantaneously) by studying the apparent motion of Jupiter's moon Io. In 1865, James Clerk Maxwell proposed that light was an electromagnetic wave, and therefore travelled at the speed c appearing in his theory of electromagnetism. In 1905, Albert Einstein postulated that the speed of light c with respect to any inertial frame is a constant and is independent of the motion of the light source. He explored the consequences of that postulate by deriving the theory of relativity and in doing so showed that the parameter c had relevance outside of the context of light and electromagnetism. After centuries of increasingly precise measurements, in 1975 the speed of light was known to be 299792458 m/s (983571056 ft/s; 186282.397 mi/s) with a measurement uncertainty of 4 parts per billion. In 1983, the metre was redefined in the International System of Units (SI) as the distance travelled by light in vacuum in 1/299792458 of a second. Follow!

"Nothing can travel faster than the speed of light." "Light always travels at the same speed." Have you heard these statements before? They are often quoted as results of Einstein's theory of relativity. Unfortunately, these statements are somewhat misleading. Let's add a few words to them to clarify. "Nothing can travel faster than the speed of light in a vacuum." "Light in a vacuum always travels at the same speed." Those additional three words in a vacuum are very important. A vacuum is a region with no matter in it. So a vacuum would not contain any dust particles (unlike a vacuum cleaner, which is generally full of dust particles). Light traveling through anything other than a perfect vacuum will scatter off off whatever particles exist, as illustrated below. In vacuum the speed of light is c = 2.99792458 x 108 m/s This vacuum speed of light, c, is what the statements from relativity describe. Whenever light is in a vacuum, its speed has that exact value, no matter who measures it. Even if the vacuum is inside a box in a rocket traveling away from earth, both an astronaut in the rocket and a hypothetical observer on earth will measure the speed of light moving through that box to be exactly c. No one will measure a faster speed. Indeed, c is the ultimate speed limit of the universe. That's not to say that nothing ever travels faster than light. As light travels through different materials, it scatters off of the molecules in the material and is slowed down. For some materials such as water, light will slow down more than electrons will. Thus an electron in water can travel faster than light in water. But nothing ever travels faster than c. The amount by which light slows in a given material is described by the index of refraction, n. The index of refraction of a material is defined by the speed of light in vacuum c divided by the speed of light through the material v: n = c/v The index of refraction of some common materials are given below. material n material n Vacuum 1 Crown Glass 1.52 Air 1.0003 Salt 1.54 Water 1.33 Asphalt 1.635 Ethyl Alcohol 1.36 Heavy Flint Glass 1.65 Fused Quartz 1.4585 Diamond 2.42 Whale Oil 1.460 Lead 2.6 Values of n come from the CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics The values of n depend somewhat on wavelength, but the dependence is not significant for most applications you will encounter in this course. Unless you are told otherwise, assume the index of refraction given you is appropriate for the wavelength of light you are considering. Those materials with large indices of refraction are called optically dense media. (A medium is just a fancy word for a type of material.) Materials with indices of refraction closer to one are called optically rare media. Being naturally lazy creatures, we generally drop the word "optical'' and talk about dense and rare materials. Just be careful not to confuse dense and rare in the optical context with mass density! Notice that the index of refraction of air differs from the index of refraction of vacuum by a very small amount. For applications with less than 5 digits of accuracy, the index of refraction of air is the same as that of vacuum, n= 1.000. You will probably not encounter a situation in which the differenc between air and vacuum matters, unless you plan a future in precise optics experimentation. Even though light slows down in matter, it still travels at an amazing speed, even through a dense material such as lead still travels at an amazing speed. (Although light does not travel far through lead before being absorbed, high-energy gamma rays can travel a centimeter or so through lead at the speed calculated here.) Using the definition of n, we can find the speed of light through lead: vlead = c/nlead= (2.99792458 x 108 m/s) /(2.6) = 1.2 x 108 m/s = 2.6 x 108miles per hour Even slowed by lead, light travels at a speed of 260 million miles per hour! That's more than 10,000 times the speed of the orbiting space shuttle. (According to a NASA site, the space shuttle travels 17,322 miles per hour when in orbit.)

Is Time Travel Possible? Subscribe: https://goo.gl/GmtyPv Everyone has thought about time travel at least once in their life. Maybe you’ve wanted to go back in time and try to change something from your past.

And if it really is possible, what would we have to do in order to make time travel a reality? The very thought about time travel and what it would take to make it a reality is mind-boggling. It is something that scientists, especially astrophysicists, have long thought about. The most fantastic thing? It's probably possible. We should probably start off with the bad news about time travel. We probably can’t travel back in time and watch the Egyptians build the pyramids. However, there are a number of theories that have suggested that it is possible to take a leap forward in time. But going back in time is far more complicated. That’s not saying it’s impossible though. The great 20th century scientist Albert Einstein developed a theory called Special Relativity. While most people think of time as a constant, Einstein showed that time is an illusion; it is relative in that it can vary for different observers depending on your speed through space. The ideas of Special Relativity are very hard to imagine because they aren't about what we experience in everyday life, but other scientists have confirmed this theory. The theory says that space and time are really aspects of the same thing which is called ‘space-time’. There is a speed limit of 300,000 kilometers per second (or 186,000 miles per second) for anything that travels through space-time, and light always travels this speed limit through empty space. So more about this illusion of time, ‘Special Relativity’ says that a surprising thing happens when you move through space-time, especially when your speed relative to other objects is close to the speed of light. Time goes slower for you than for the people you left behind. You won't notice this effect until you return to those stationary people. So as an experiment, let’s say you were 15 years old and you left Earth in a spacecraft traveling at about close to the speed of light, and you celebrated only five birthdays during your space voyage. When you got home at the age of 20, you would find that all your classmates who were the same age as you when you left were 65 years old, retired, and hanging out with their grandchildren! The reason for this is because as time passed more slowly for you, you would have experienced only five years of life, while your classmates will have experienced a full 50 years.

From MIT: "MIT researchers have created a new imaging system that can acquire visual data at a rate of one trillion exposures per second. That's fast enough to produce a slow-motion video of a burst of light traveling the length of a one-liter bottle, bouncing off the cap and reflecting back to the bottle's bottom." "The pulse of light is less than a millimeter long. Between each frame, the pulse travels less than half a millimeter. Light travels a foot in a nanosecond and the duration of travel through a one foot long bottle is barely one nanosecond (one billionth of a second)."

The speed of light is more of a hot topic than ever nowadays. It is the speed at which photons travel in a vacuum- and is the fastest speed achievable within the universe. As creatures of exploration and innovation, understanding light speed has naturally led us on a quest to try and determine a method with which we can reach it, and eventually one day exceed it. Si-Fi fantasy or not, a galaxy of the Milky Way’s vastness would require such speeds to make exploring it somewhat of a possibility for a race such as humanity’s. But there are some drawbacks. The difficulty of developing light speed travel, or propulsion systems that could travel at a high percentage of it, is enormous- and may be impossible altogether. Furthermore, our current understanding of physics suggests that were you to travel at this immense speed, you would be making more of a sacrifice than you first anticipate, as light and time go hand in hand at the limit of possibility. Nonetheless, we are investing, investigating and innovating, and examining the skies and the stars, as we search for a way to travel at the ultimate speed of light… Want more videos?

Martin explains how we can freeze light inside crystals, stopping it in its tracks to perhaps one day create Superman-like information storage. Light travels at 299,792,458 metres per second when moving through a vacuum. Nothing can go faster than this, mainly due to weight as only mass-less photons can travel that fast. However if photons travel though a substance like water they slow down. That's why the bottom of swimming pools look closer than they are. Researchers in Germany have recently been able to stop light moving for an entire minute at a time. An impressive feat, as in the space of a minute light would normally be able to travel the equivalent of 450 times around the Earth. In order to trap light, researchers used a crystal, two distinct lasers and praseodymium ions. The charged particles inside the crystal turn it opaque effectively prohibiting light to enter. By firing a laser beam at the crystal, a quantum effect takes place called 'electromagnetically induced transparency' and light of a certain colour can now enter. The second laser is then fired, of course it has the requisite colour and while it is passing through, the first laser is deactivated, the crystal turns opaque again and the light from the second laser is trapped inside. The slowed light trapped inside the crystal is effectively no longer light, it's a spin wave. The praseodymium ions have a property known as spin due to the electrons orbiting around their nuclei and they create the wave. However the light can be retrieved in its original state. It retains its quantum coherence giving rise to the possibility that it could be used to store information. Just imagine, HeadSqueeze videos of the future stored inside crystals then accessed at super fast-speeds. Superman's Kryptonian crystal palace awaits!

Special Thanks to: Izak Smit for the Music If you fly at the speed of light you will go around the earth 7.5 times in one second. If we maintain that same speed we can get to the moon in 1.3 seconds, and then we can go all the way to Mars in 4.2 minutes, just enough time to make some noodles and if you are fast a cup of tea. And if we carry on through the asteroid belt maintaining our speed of 300 000 km per second we will reach the gas giant Jupiter in about 43 minutes, more than enough time to eat noodles drink tea and to play a few games of black jack. From here it will take us another 86min to get to Saturn, just enough time to watch the movie shrek. To fly from earth to the end of our solar system past pluto will take 4.5 Hours at the speed of light. That’s enough time to watch fellow ship of the ring and the two towers. We maintain this speed and it takes us 4 years to get to the closest star. 4 birthdays and 4 Christmas dinners, think of a job or something you have done every day for 4 years to get perspective of your time onboard this space ship. If we want to fly from the one end of the galaxy to the other end it would take 100 000 years, that means if people on this space ship grow to the age of 100 our flight time will take 1000 generations of people getting born and growing old on board this ship before we reach our destination. Finally we reach the end of our milky way after 100 000 years of flying at incredible speeds To get us to the next galaxy we have to fly for 2.5 million years at this speed we have to wait for another 25 thousand generations to come and go before we reach our destination. Now we will attempt our journey to the edge of the universe which will take 46 billion light years, so we will go through four hundred and sixty million generations of 100 year old people before we get there, at which point we could possibly discover a multiverse. Astronomers estfimate that the observable universe has more than 100 billion galaxies. Our own Milky Way is home to around 300 billion stars. There are more stars in our universe than grains of sand on all the beaches in the world and 75% of the stars in our galaxy have planets around them, and many are in the habital zone. Considering that a teaspoon of sand has more atoms than all the stars in the observable universe just imagine all the spontaneous chemical reactions happening with all the chemicals on all the planets surrounding all the stars and then consider that the building blocks for life such as amino acids and proteins can spontaneously form in certain environments, then one has to consider the possibility that life on other planets is mathematically inevitable.

The word usually refers to visible light, which is visible to the human eye and is responsible for the sense of sight. Visible light is usually defined as having wavelengths in the range of 400–700 nanometres (nm), or 4.00 × 10−7 to 7.00 × 10−7 m, between the infrared (with longer wavelengths) and the ultraviolet (with shorter wavelengths). This wavelength means a frequency range of roughly 430–750 terahertz (THz). The main source of light on Earth is the Sun. Sunlight provides the energy that green plants use to create sugars mostly in the form of starches, which release energy into the living things that digest them. This process of photosynthesis provides virtually all the energy used by living things. Historically, another important source of light for humans has been fire, from ancient campfires to modern kerosene lamps. With the development of electric lights and power systems, electric lighting has effectively replaced firelight. Some species of animals generate their own light, a process called bioluminescence. For example, fireflies use light to locate mates, and vampire squids use it to hide themselves from prey. The primary properties of visible light are intensity, propagation direction, frequency or wavelength spectrum, and polarization, while its speed in a vacuum, 299,792,458 metres per second, is one of the fundamental constants of nature. Visible light, as with all types of electromagnetic radiation (EMR), is experimentally found to always move at this speed in a vacuum. In physics, the term light sometimes refers to electromagnetic radiation of any wavelength, whether visible or not. In this sense, gamma rays, X-rays, microwaves and radio waves are also light. Like all types of light, visible light is emitted and absorbed in tiny "packets" called photons and exhibits properties of both waves and particles. This property is referred to as the wave–particle duality. The study of light, known as optics, is an important research area in modern physics." Wikipedia contributors. "Light."

HELLO GUYS HOW R U ALL , IN THIS VIDEO IM TALK ABOUT SPEED OF LIGHT . #LIGHTSPEED #SPEEDOFLIGHT #TRAVELINGLIGHTSPEED The speed of light in vacuum, commonly denoted c, is a universal physical constant important in many areas of physics. Its exact value is 299,792,458 metres per second (approximately 300,000 km/s (186,000 mi/s)[Note 3]). It is exact because by international agreement a metre is defined to be the length of the path travelled by light in vacuum during a time interval of 1/299792458 second.[Note 4] According to special relativity, c is the maximum speed at which all conventional matter and hence all known forms of information in the universe can travel. Though this speed is most commonly associated with light, it is in fact the speed at which all massless particles and changes of the associated fields travel in vacuum (including electromagnetic radiation and gravitational waves). Such particles and waves travel at c regardless of the motion of the source or the inertial reference frame of the observer. In the special and general theories of relativity, c interrelates space and time, and also appears in the famous equation of mass–energy equivalence E = mc2. The speed at which light propagates through transparent materials, such as glass or air, is less than c; similarly, the speed of electromagnetic waves in wire cables is slower than c. The ratio between c and the speed v at which light travels in a material is called the refractive index n of the material (n = c / v). For example, for visible light the refractive index of glass is typically around 1.5, meaning that light in glass travels at c / 1.5 ≈ 200,000 km/s (124,000 mi/s); the refractive index of air for visible light is about 1.0003, so the speed of light in air is about 299,700 km/s (186,220 mi/s), which is about 90 km/s (56 mi/s) slower than c. For many practical purposes, light and other electromagnetic waves will appear to propagate instantaneously, but for long distances and very sensitive measurements, their finite speed has noticeable effects. In communicating with distant space probes, it can take minutes to hours for a message to get from Earth to the spacecraft, or vice versa. The light seen from stars left them many years ago, allowing the study of the history of the universe by looking at distant objects. The finite speed of light also limits the theoretical maximum speed of computers, since information must be sent within the computer from chip to chip. The speed of light can be used with time of flight measurements to measure large distances to high precision. Ole Rømer first demonstrated in 1676 that light travels at a finite speed (as opposed to instantaneously) by studying the apparent motion of Jupiter's moon Io. In 1865, James Clerk Maxwell proposed that light was an electromagnetic wave, and therefore travelled at the speed c appearing in his theory of electromagnetism. In 1905, Albert Einstein postulated that the speed of light c with respect to any inertial frame is a constant and is independent of the motion of the light source.

The universal speed limit is 299,792,458 metres or 300,000 kilometres per second, and due to the rules the flying spaghetti monster imposed upon the universe during its creation, this limit cannot be broken. Or can it? Theoretical physics describes a type of particle which may be able to break the light barrier. It can also reportedly travel through time, it gets faster as it loses energy and it possesses has negative mass. So does this mysterious particle really exist?

ZOOM in and out space earth planet cool sweet science technology cells cell atoms atom The speed of light, usually denoted by c, is a physical constant representing the speed at which light and all otherelectromagnetic radiation travels in vacuum. Its value is exactly 299,792,458 metres per second (approximately 186,282 miles per second). In the theory of relativity, c connects space and time, and appears in the famous equation of mass--energy equivalence E = mc2. The speed of light is the speed of all massless particles and associated fields in vacuum, and it is predicted by the current theory to be the speed of gravity and of gravitational waves and an upper bound on the speed at which energy, matter, and information can travel. The speed at which light propagates through transparent materials, such as glass or air, is less than c. The ratio between c and the speed v at which light travels in a material is called the refractive index n of the material (n = c / v). For example, for visible light the refractive index of glass is typically around 1.5, meaning that light in glass travels at c / 1.5 ≈ 200,000 km/s; therefractive index of air for visible light is about 1.0003, so the speed of light in air is very close to c. Ole Rømer first demonstrated in 1676 that light travelled at a finite speed (as opposed to instantaneously) by studying the apparent motion of Jupiter's moon Io. After centuries of increasingly precise measurements, in 1975 the speed of light was known to be 299,792,458 m/s with a relative measurement uncertainty of 4 parts per billion. In 1983, the metre was redefined in the International System of Units (SI) as the distance travelled by light in vacuum in 1⁄299,792,458 of a second. As a result, the numerical value of c in metres per second is now fixed exactly by the definition of the metre. A light-year is a unit of distance. It is the distance that light can travel in one year. Light moves at a vA light year is a way of measuring distance. That doesn't make much sense because "light year" contains the word "year," which is normally a unit of time. Even so, light years measure distance. You are used to measuring distances in either inches/feet/miles or centimeters/meters/kilometers, depending on where you live. You know how long a foot or a meter is -- you are comfortable with these units because you use them every day. Same thing with miles and kilometers -- these are nice, human increments of distance. When astronomers use their telescopes to look atstars, things are different. The distances are gigantic. For example, the closest star to Earth (besides our sun) is something like 24,000,000,000,000 miles (38,000,000,000,000 kilometers) away. That's the closest star. There are stars that are billions of times farther away than that. When you start talking about those kinds of distances, a mile or kilometer just isn't a practical unit to use because the numbers get too big. No one wants to write or talk about numbers that have 20 digits in them! So to measure really long distances, people use a unit called alight year. Light travels at 186,000 miles per second (300,000 kilometers per second). Therefore, a light second is 186,000 miles (300,000 kilometers). A light year is the distance that light can travel in a year, or: 186,000 miles/second * 60 seconds/minute * 60 minutes/hour * 24 hours/day * 365 days/year = 5,865,696,000,000 miles/year A light year is 5,865,696,000,000 miles (9,460,800,000,000 kilometers). That's a long way! Using a light year as a distance measurement has another advantage -- it helps you determine age. Let's say that a star is 1 million light years away. The light from that star has traveled at the speed of light to reach us. Therefore, it has taken the star's light 1 million years to get here, and the light we are seeing was created 1 million years ago. So the star we are seeing is really how the star looked a million years ago, not how it looks today. In the same way, our sun is 8 or so light minutes away. If the sun were to suddenly explode right now, we wouldn't know about it for eight minutes because that is how long it would take for the light of the explosion to get here. How Far is a Light-Year? A light-year is a unit of length used by astronomers to measure interstellar distance (the distance between stars). A light-year is defined as the distance that light will travel in a year. If the speed of light is 186,000 miles per second (300,000 km per second), then calculate the distance that light will travel in one year. Express your answer in miles per year. [Note: Cancel similar units above and below the dividing line. This process is known as "dimensional analysis."] Solution: 186,000 mi/sec x 60 sec/min x 60 min/hr x 24 hr/day x 365 days/yr

So we’re really talking about the speed of electromagnetism. James Clerk Maxwell was the genius who first described the properties of electromagnetism into physics equations. From these equations, we can calculate the speed of light. 299,792 kilometers per second. Einstein was able to prove through his theory of special relativity that the closer you get to the speed of light, the more time slows down for a person in that relative frame. And if you were to go the speed of light, time would stop altogether. So if you were able to travel faster than light through spacetime, time itself would actually flip. Time would go backwards. And that would break causality. Effect would precede cause, which is impossible. The speed of light is the speed of causality. The other prediction that supports a speed limit is the idea that inertia increases as velocity approaches the speed of light. That means mass increases. So mass is a speed impediment. Nothing that has mass can go the speed of light. But if you are massless, you can only go the speed of light, because you have no speed impediments. And photons are massless particles. Particles that must travel at the speed of light and because they are traveling at the speed of light, time stands still from its point of view. So really, that video I talked about earlier is all wrong, from the perspective of the photon, that journey would have occurred instantly. So when you look at a star at night, that massless photon might have traveled a million light-years to reach you, but its experience was instantaneous. Now there is another theory that’s a little controversial but starting to gain some ground. It says that the speed of light is actually caused by quantum vacuum fluctuations. See, quantum field theory claims that empty space is actually not empty at all but filled with quantum fluctuations and virtual particles popping in and out of existence. And two different teams of researchers have calculated c using electromagnetic properties of the quantum vacuum, so it could be that the quantum foam of virtual particles and fluctuations may be slowing the speed of light. But what if the speed of light wasn’t the speed of light? What if Galileo was right and the speed is infinite? Then nothing would exist. Because matter is made of energy, it would take infinite energy to create any mass. Time and space wouldn’t exist because all things communicate with each other instantaneously. Cause and effect wouldn’t exist. But if the speed of light were slower, that might be even cooler. Because then we could see all the way back to the big bang. The speed of light, of course, is just one of many constants in the universe, like gravity, the specific charges and masses of the fundamental particles, quantum effects, and the list goes on. A whole handful of very specific constants that if they were just a little bit different, we would never exist.
