SPEED OF LIGHT IN VACUUM IS NOT ACTUALLY CONSTANT
One thing I have always have respected about science is it can admit when it needs to change what it believes based on constant studies and never being satisfied with an answer, some other things are much more stubborn (i’m looking at your religion)
SPEED OF LIGHT IN VACUUM IS NOT ACTUALLY CONSTANT, STUDY FINDS
OH, AND A VACUUM MAY NOT REALLY BE VOID OF MATTER.
A paper by a team of French physicists, finds that the speed of a photon in a vacuum fluctuates by 50 quintillionths of a second per square meter. In addition, it posits that vacuums may actually have extremely short-lived particles in them that keep appearing and disappearing.
These ideas may be testable, the physicists wrote. Ultra-fast lasers should be able to capture the changes in the speed of light they’re proposing.
At the same time, in the same journal, two German physicists studied the properties of a vacuum and proposed an estimate for the total of charged elementary particles in nature—on the order of 100.
Both papers appeared in the March issue of the European Physical Journal D.
