How fast is light?

Ok, the moment you’ve been waiting for…

I bet you saw the other post, “How far away is the earth from the sun?” and then looked up how fast was light at the end of reading it. So, just so you can know if this is your first time…

Light travels at 186,282 miles per second (in a vacuum). That means that one ray of light can go around the earth 7 times in one second.
