Light Traveling In Opposite Directions Around Planet Earth Assume: Twenty-Four Space Platforms are placed into space at equal distances. One Platform is a Space Station containing equipment necessary to make this experiment happen. The other twenty-three Platforms contain mirrors configured in angles necessary to make this experiment happen. A beam of light is transmitted in opposite directions [East & West] from the Space Station. The object is to measure the time that it takes for the two beams to return to the Space Station. Assume that they do not bump into each- other. The Question is: Will both beams of light return to the Space Station at precisely the same time?
