I can hop pretty fast. Fact is, I’m one of the fastest marsupials in my family. But that doesn’t even come close to the speed of light. Clocking in at nearly 300 million miles per second, the speed of light was first theorized by Einstein and later proved, right down to the exact speed (299,792,458 miles per second). But, as it turns out, the speed of light is not a speed limit. Check out the video and see for yourself. very cool.
