Light Riding


Jump To Light Speed, visualized (credit: YouTube)


If you were able to hitch a ride on a beam of light, how would things look? They probably would move slower than what you think of as "light speed". Planets and other objects in space definitely would not be as depicted in SciFi movies when 'jump to light speed' scenes are shown. A clever animation offers a proper impression of how the vast distances within even our own solar system would appear. WHB
