Hagedorn Temperature?

  1. Dec 14, 2008 #1
    Hey guys, I was just wondering. If light can slow down at the temperature of 0 degrees Kelvin, isn't it possible for light to speed up if it was in a medium that had a temperature of 10^30 degrees Kelvin, which is roughly the highest temperature attainable in nature.

    Your thoughts on this please.

    The speed of light is the speed of light, I am afraid. Heating it doesn't make it faster.
