In our terrestrial view of things, the speed of light seems incredibly fast. But as soon as you view it against the vast distances of the universe, it's unfortunately very slow. This animation illustrates, in realtime, the journey of a photon of light emitted from the surface of the sun and traveling across a portion of the solar system, from a human perspective.
I've taken liberties with certain things like the alignment of planets and asteroids, as well as ignoring the laws of relativity concerning what a photon actually "sees" or how time is experienced at the speed of light, but overall I've kept the size and distances of all the objects as accurate as possible. I also decided to end the animation just past Jupiter as I wanted to keep the running length below an hour.

Speech of Scott Smith (Changeist) during the Media Future Week (MFW). Participants (students, young professionals, professors and lectors) in the MFW are challenged to develop their own vision on the media future. They will work in mixed teams on a cross-media case from the industry. Media companies provide the MFW participants with a case or problem. During the week, the participants work on these cases and present a solution at the end of the week.
Participants of MFW are offered an exclusive program of 12 hours daily to help them to create original case solutions. Leading international media professionals (like Scott Smith) will inspire the participants with enthousiastic speeches, Dutch high profile entrepreneurs will share their experiences and the participants are offered practical workshops, for example on business modeling.
