An obvious truth about the speed of light that should have stared people in the face!

Frank Pio Russo - February 17, 2018. (Revised slightly a couple of hours later.)

The standardized accepted speed of light is one done with lasers which represents the average of an away and return leg thus not giving the whole picture. However wherever there is orbital movement, the absolute speed of light is somewhat reduced to become the local relative speed, due to an inflation of the length involved.

From memory I think the orbital speed of the earth only varies by about plus or minus half a kilometre throughout the year, so one would not expect the speed of light to waver very much at all - only lowering the mean by a maximum of about 88.73 metres. However a key feature of this fact is that since 1983, the metre has been defined as 1/299792458th of the one second length of light travel , hence one would not even be aware of any such discrepancies!

Furthermore, as most ballistic missiles might not travel much more than 10,000 km at a time - that's about 1/30th of the one second speed of light in distance - the extreme resultant error might only be under 3 metres (with time dilation correction incorporated)! Which is fairly negligible. Of course this figure would be approached at perihelion and aphelion.

Finally in case you haven't been following my work at all, the absolute speed of light is 304,475,873.2 m/sec, and this is lowered by orbital speed due to the fact that light is delayed by either having to travel along a longer hypotenuse or along an inflated longitudinal length. The latter should have stared people in the face and been quite obvious to anybody not "insane" or simplistic like Einstein.

PS. - Of course the variations in orbital speed could be programmed into the system, in which case such morons are covering up for their mistakes without being any wiser to it all!
