- The speed of light is a well-known physical constant. In addition to the great implications of the fact that there is a limit speed, this constant has become an absolute reference, a true pattern of measurement.
- Its value, gigantic for the human scale, has turned its measure into a conquest of science, carried out through centuries of effort.
- Even today, with better tools, it is a challenge to try to repeat some of the experiments that historically led to their obtaining.
