    Light doesn’t always travel at ‘the speed of light’. It only goes at that speed (299,792,458 meters per second) when travelling through a vacuum; when it passes through matter, it slows down. The slowest light has ever been recorded moving at is a 38mph, while passing through an ultra cold gas of sodium atoms.

    Now before pooh-poohing the amount, remember that was in 1970!
