Unformatted text preview: Out Rush From Earth to the Edge of the Universe At 767 miles per hour, an F/A-18 Hornet makes a visible sonic boom. The velocity of light is 186,000 miles per second. At this speed, sunlight will reach earth in 8 minutes. When we look at the sun in real time, do we see the sun as it actually exists at this precise moment, or as it once existed 8 minutes earlier? Mars Rover Entry Water Ice Cap Communication time: 20 minutes At light speed, Jupiter is one light hour away. Do we see Jupiter as it actually exists from God’s omnipotent view, or as it existed one hour ago? Neptune is six times more distant than Jupiter. Sunlight will take six hours to reach this distant planet. Distance from Earth to Proxima Centauri, the next nearest star. 40,000,000,000,000 Kilometers or 4.24 Light Years away Helix Nebula 650 L.Y.
