as far as i know, stars are being studied. just because there’s this tiny delay, doesn’t mean we can’t study them. what we do see is what’s used to study them.[/quote:3vgfi75i]

well it’s not a tiny delay. with respect to the stars, it’s on the macro scale. i’m just using it as an analogy to point out the micro delay in the experiment gloom is discussing i don’t believe is possible to be measured, either accurately or precisely. for example, i think the light you see from the sun takes 8 seconds to get here.[/quote:3vgfi75i]
i know it’s not tiny. i was just trying to exaggerate my point (that a delay doesn’t mean you can’t study things).

and i thought it was more in the order of 8 minutes, not seconds.
