ok, I think I have come up with a conclusion here...

ok I have a stick and the moon.

As I Push the stick, towards the Moon, I compress it. Now rather than me moving this "stick" in one motion, the movement travels in a wave. So I guess I could Push it further than 1m because of this compression but the wave will most likely bounce back and shove the stick in my face .

Does this seem legit?



I remember having fun once, it was terrible...

Shouldn't we take the rotation of both Earth and Moon in account and different movement speeds of both objects?

I haven't really taken this into account, I could, but I'm only looking at the way the stick behaves over a long distance

The only valid way to compare Two objects' speed , is to have the same starting point , the same distance to cover , and the same starting time . Unless the physics i have been taught is different .
NoNe of those are applied in the current arguement so its off right from the hypothesis .

But lets overlook that . Yes your stick would arrive faster on the Moon than the light that has to cover thousands of kilometers . But even like this, the light isnt spontaneous like a "dot" , its constant . So your stick will still be beaten by countless more rays that arrived before.

I dont even know why i am answering this



oh he ought to be an admiral, a sultan, or a King
And to his praises we shall always sing
Look what he has done for us, he's filled us up with cheer
Lord bless Cha

How fast would the stick move from the moment I Push it to the time it hits the moon. Would be instantaneous or will there be a delay. Because I think the movement will travel like a wave rather than just a single push. (like pushing a spring into a wall).
