Speed of Light Thank You!

Dear citizens of the universe, You probably know that light can reach two hundred ninety nine thousand, seven hundred ninety two measly kilometers in a second, but did you also know that physics can now reach over two hundred ninety nine thousand, seven hundred ninety two amazing people in a minute? We’ve broken the speed

Misconceptions About the Universe

It has been a time of time in which the universe was expanding so rapidly that its parts were far apart For some of them larger than the speed of light itself this time we live now many people are fascinated From the fact that during the expansion of the universe immediately after Anbthaqh into
