I know it takes something like 8 seconds for light to reach the Earth from Sun. I was thinking about from the Earth to the Sun though, and I don’t think it would make it all the way (overpowered).
So, for the sake of enjoyment, let’s pretend we had a space shuttle that was capable of sustaining temperatures from the sun at say, 100km away from it. It also had a window, which was pointing away from the Sun and towards Earth. How far away from the Sun, or how close to Earth, would you have to get before you could see any light from it with the human eye?
I am also curious of the probability of a single photon making the entire trip from the surface of the Earth to the Sun, if any of our maths/physics wizards think they can calculate that
