How fast does light travel?

 Q:   Ask a Question about How fast does light travel?       
How fast does light travel? The speed of light is the fastest speed known - light travels through the vacuum of space at 300,000 km per second. Nothing else can travel at this speed, and the theory of relativity, conceived by Albert Einstein, says that nothing can even approach this speed.

This means that travel to the stars will not be possible, because it would take hundreds of years to reach them.

Albert Einstein was one of the world's greatest scientists. His theories explained the basic properties of matter and the Universe, and made possible the development of nuclear power.
His equations also showed that nothing can exceed the speed of light.
