Speed is a relative concept. Imagine you are standing at the train platform, and you might think you are still. But a friend of yours sitting in a train driving through the station would say the opposite: for them, you do have a speed! However, no matter who or where you are: in vacuum, light always travels at the same speed. The speed of light is the ultimate speed limit and serves as a reference. This simple and intriguing fact has tremendous repercussions for the evolution of our universe.
