Scientists Propose a New Method to Test Their Theory Suggesting that the Speed of Light is Not Constant
About a century ago, Albert Einstein proposed that the speed of light in vacuum is a fixed constant in the universe, and its value never changes, whatever conditions you test them under. Now two scientists have proposed a new theory and a method to test this theory to prove that Einstein was wrong, and that the speed of light is not a constant value.
Last week, the sun fired off its strongest solar flare of 2016 that was captured on video by NASA's sun-watching satellite - Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO). The event occurred on July 22 and 23, with sun unleashing three relatively moderate solar flares.
