The Speed of Light is the speed that light travels in a year, its exact value is defined as 299792458 metres per second.


The speed of light is about 220,000 miles per second. (SG1: "Prometheus") Light takes several minutes to travel between the Earth and the Sun. (SG1: "1969") A Tel'tak can travel at twice the speed of light. (SG1: "Deadman's Switch") Supernova blasts can expand at nearly the speed of light. (SG1: "Exodus") The sublight engines on the Prometheus can accelerate to half the speed of light. (SG1: "Prometheus")


In 1997, the Goa'uld upgraded their hyperdrive technology going from being able to accelerate from 10 times the speed of light to over 3600 times the speed of light. (SG1: "Within the Serpent's Grasp")
