half minutes too late. Roemer conclude
-ed the reason to be that it, required 17
minutes for light from the placet to
traverse the diameter of the earth's
orbit, which measured the difference
of the distances of the earth from
Jupiter. This calculation has since J
been verified, and proves that light '
travels about 186,000 miles a second.
