The centre of the universe?[change source]

The Sun is the centre of the Solar System, and not of the universe. (talk) 08:51, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

This is true, and we know that now, but both Copernicus and Galileo believed that it was the centre of the universe. It wasn't until Newton came along that the discovery of the sun being only the centre of our Solar System came to light. Lauryn 20:20, 19 February 2010 (UTC)

Lantern experiment[change source]

The sources I have found seem to indicate that the lantern experiment did not conclusively discover the speed of light. See, for instance, this excerpt from a book I found online. The English Wikipedia's article on Galileo seems to reflect a similar inconclusiveness. Kansan (talk) 22:34, 23 October 2010 (UTC)

All elementary physics. See Michelson–Morley experiment for the 1887 experiment. Macdonald-ross (talk) 14:24, 3 October 2011 (UTC)

This article is at a "stub" level. Someone needs to expand this Greg (Heffley · c · l) 15:33, 29 September 2011 (UTC)

Feel free. It's a wiki. The Rambling Man (talk) 16:39, 29 September 2011 (UTC)
But meantime no, it is absolutely not a stub. Macdonald-ross (talk) 14:27, 3 October 2011 (UTC)
