Main Question or Discussion Point
is it possible, i mean can we hold it at a certain distance we want ?
How can you say that isnt really possible ? what do you relly on ? can you show me any proof of it..thank you btwYes, it definitely can.
My question was more if you consider fog and rain as air.
Light gets scattered by air molecules, but that's not really 'holding it at a certain distance'.
Actually stopping a ray of light isn't really possible without putting something in its way, to absorb it.
Light is an electromagnetic wave that behaves according to Maxwell's equations. These equations do not allow "standing still" as a solution.How can you say that isnt really possible ? what do you relly on ? can you show me any proof of it.
We receive light from galaxies billions of light years away, and the CMBR from even further.How can you say that isnt really possible ? what do you relly on ? can you show me any proof of it..thank you btw
We're relying on the laws of physics, which are consistent with every observation made and every experiment ever performed.How can you say that isnt really possible ? what do you relly on ?
What I want to know is if you are simply focusing on just regular, ordinary, atmospheric air, or do you also include ANY gas phase. Lene Hau has stopped light in Na gas back in... what, 2001? Not only that, she managed to hold it for some time, and then "released" it back!i consider it inside of the atmosphere, on earth. But in vacuum i guess it doesnt matter. Light can travel in both mediums, right?
The speed of light in air is slightly less than c. So the possibility exists to get some "air" moving very close to c one way and shoot light through it in the opposite direction.Well, the problem with that is that you can't get the air to move at the speed of light.
