In the blink of an eye a beam of light can make it around our planet almost 8 times! So, if light can travel 8 times around the earth in a single second, how much distance does it cover in a year?

The Hubble telescope, which orbits about 340 miles above Earth, has captured an image of a star 28 billion light years away!
