Answers to this question:
Light travels at 186,000 miles a second!
According to the Bible, before the sun was ever created, God said "Light be!" and light was, at a speed of 186,000 miles a second.
This declaration of God rang forth and started a reaction that echoed through the eons of time. The universe exploded into existence and is still expanding today, at almost the speed of light (though slowing down according to the Big Bang theory).
And light, as observed by scientists, is the very basis of life! And John 1:4 says of our Lord Jesus, "In HIm was life and that life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness and the darkness did not comprehend it".
Thought I would share a little "food for thought".

then multiply it by 60 seconds = 11160000
then multiply that by 60 minutes = 669600000
then multiply that by 24 hours = 16070400000
then multiply that by 365 days = 5,865,696,000,000 miles
In a leap year light would travel: 5,881,766,400,000 miles
So the answer must be between those two amounts.
The figure 5.903 oooooooo looks a bit high.
