If E to F is earth’s orbit and B is Jupiter, this dude used measurements w.r.t E, B, D and C to quantitatively estimate something for the first time. What?

p.s. D-C is guessable.

Late question is very late. Apologies folks, this question will be up for 24hrs from this point.

    The dude is Ole Roemer, Danish astronomer, who used the calculations to quantitatively estimate the speed of light for the first time.

    First quantitative measurement of the speed of light by Ole Romer.

    Ole Romer\’s measurement of the speed of light.
    he compared the duration of Io\’s(Jupiter\’s moon) orbits as Earth moved towards Jupiter (F to G) and as Earth moved away from Jupiter (L to K).

    Ole Rømer.
    Rømer compared the duration of Io’s orbits as Earth moved towards and away from Jupiter, and thus made the first quantitative measurements of the Speed of Light.

    Speed of Light, the chap being Romer.


  20. xtremevarun

    guy is ole romer….first guy who approximated speed of light by observing eclipses of jupiter and io and noticed that when jupiter is further away from earth, the eclipse took place lil later…..
