Light speed Too slow...

actually, from the point of view of the light "particle," the trip would be instantaneous due to quantum **** ......

That definitely wasn't the speed of light.

0/10 no special relativity taken into account.

Speed of light just stopped half way through... we must of ran out of quarters.

Light must lag really bad.

Wouldn't the field of view change so that you begin to see things behind you, and all the light from the universe in front of you (if going backwards facing forwards) would become blue shifted?

If this were actually correct the portion of earth would be way shorter and the portion to the moon longer, because earths atmosphere only goes up 40-50 mi while the moon is 200k+ mi away

The speed/distance ratio is off, but it's a nicely put in laymans terms.

Light cannot always be going the speed of light because black holes exist. From a reference frame located inside the event horizon of a black hole light will likely not be going the speed of light.

Frankly the lack of actual experimental knowledge regarding the speed of light in relitivistically moving reference frames makes know what actually would happen to what we see in this scenario difficult to predict.
