The speed at which sound propagates (or travels from its source) is directly influenced by both the medium through which it travels and the factors affecting the medium, such as altitude, humidity and temperature for gases like air. Bad news for Star Wars fans—there is no sound in the vacuum of space because there are too few molecules to propagate a wave. It is important to note that sound speed in air is determined by the air itself. It is not dependent upon the sound’s amplitude, frequency or wavelength. To calculate the speed of sound in dry air at sea level, use the following formula:
V = 331.4 + 0.6Tc V = velocity (m/s), Tc = temperature in Celsius.
For comparison, the speed of light in a vacuum is 299,792,458 meters per second or 186,000 miles per second (669,600,000 mph), which is roughly 870,000 times faster than the speed of sound. The difference between the speed of light and the speed of sound is why you see lightening before you hear it (unless you are struck by it, in which case it may be simultaneous!).
If you carefully read through it you will see the lies and deception by the mainstream the debunkers grasp on to so tightly. My next post will point all this out.

It seems that most everyone in this thread knows a good deal more than the OP.
Oh, and BTW.....the point was that the text in the earlier post was NOT written by the person who posted it. ATS rules are very clear:

Point is, the information presented is certainly what I, and everyone else who's been through school and taken science classes already know.
But the question still stands: Did you fully understand it?
Time will tell.......
