Maybe this is the discovery needed for the new cohort of budding physicists who yearn to see the new Golden Age of physics.
I found this video of Hadhrat Khalifatul Masih IV(ru) on his views about the speed of light. It is from Majlis Khuddamul Ahmadiyya UK Majlis Irfan of 14 December 1997. This video is most insightful and tells us about the foresight and depth of knowledge of Hadhrat Khalifatul Masih IV(ru).
