One uncovered his lantern; then the second saw the flash, he uncovered his, as well. By observing how long it took for the light to be seen by the first lantern-holder . He determined that light took time to travel from Io (Jupiter's moon) to Earth Determined that light traveled 10 times faster than sound Galileo(1667) Calculated that the speed of light was about 185,000 miles/second which is accurate within about 1%. Used a mirror, a wheel and 5 miles to calculate the speed of light within 1000 miles per second. His result of 186,355 miles per second was accepted as the most accurate measurement of the speed of light for 40 years. Wrote his first paper on special relativity. In it, he established that light travels at the same speed no matter how fast the observer moves Being able to travel faster than the speed of light? In theory, the universe grew faster than the speed of light for a small amount of time after the Big Bang Theory. Cleaver and Richard Obousy believe that by manipulating this type of dark energy we could create a "bubble" . This "bubble would allow an expansion of space and time behind a spaceship while shrinking space and time in front of it. ml
