How To Determine The Exact Speed You Are Moving In The Universe This should and will be able to show exactly how fast and in what direction the planet and all of its inhabitants are moving in the universe. . . If a light source is in front of you and you are moving in the universe towards the light then you should reach the light faster. As fast as you are moving in the universe towards it. The same would be true if you are moving away from the light source. The light would have to travel however much farther to reach you. . . Since the speed of light is a constant, by taking measurements in the x/y planes you can find the differences in time, and be able to devise the exact direction and speed that the object is moving in the universe. example: y+.6 x-.2 (o) x+.2 y-.6 The movement of this object in the universe, if this were the case, would be down and slightly to the left in this orientation.
