    the value of C or the speed of light fascinates me for the simple fact that no matter what creates the light, be it a candle, glowstick, bioluminescent fish or the sun it still has the same speed. my question is..... what gives light this amazing property? no matter if its the dimmest source of light say a glowstick to the brightest objects in the universe the speed remains constant. Why is this?
