pointless trivia

did you know that a light-year is actually a measure of distance and not time? people get confused because of the word “year” in it. a lightyear is actually the DISTANCE traveled by light within a year. so that’s

c x 60 x 60 x 24 x 365

c is the speed of light in meters per second

60 seconds per minute

60 minutes per hour

24 hours per day

365.25 days per year

and it’s also equivalent to 0.3066 parsecs

geeky post.
