Yes. The speed of light in water is about 75% of the speed of light in a vacuum.

Actually, I don't speak about it anymore than boooots does about his 66, lol.
I talked to Just think on other threads, he rants all day and doesn't shut it, I'm bound to talk down to him and lose my temper. You did with me thinking that I was a kid. But Just think denied that he was a kid, so I was wondering if he was lying or not, Hmmm.
He never shuts up, everybody suspects he can't be any older than 20.
I still think you're a kid.

I can hear your mommy bitching at you to take out the trash.

LOL. I'm not an unproductive person.
Anyway, I have no reason to lie.

I'm a little new to topix, so I'm not yet used to the childish manners of some adults on here lol, so I sometimes assume them to be kids(Kinda like with you lol, I thought you were a kid at first).

That would be one way of detecting aliens, but is highly unreliable. A better way would be to measure free oxygen in the atmosphere of another planet.
HA HA HA !!!!

First of all, we can't even tell if there's life on Mars or Venus and they're right next door. What makes you think we can absolutely be certain of oxygen on a planet million of light years away?

Second, you're assuming that oxygen is needed for life to exist.

No, I did not assume that. What I claimed is that free oxygen is evidence of life and is better evidence than a picture taken by a hillbilly. There are certainly types of life that do not require free oxygen.

And we could be certain of the existence of free oxygen if we detected its spectrum, although that technique is likely to be limited to planets that are within a couple hundred light years from us (for technical reasons).
