User: According to science, the fastest speed possible for anything is the speed of light, which is about 186,000 miles per second. That is, in one minute, light travels 11,160,000 miles. The star nearest Earth is the Sun. It's about 93,000,000 miles from Earth. Therefore, it takes sunlight about eight minutes to travel to Earth. So, when you see the Sun, you aren't seeing it as it is. You're seeing it as it was eight minutes ago. Since the stars are much farther away than our Sun, imagine how far back in time you're seeing them! It's obvious that humans will never travel to planets near even the closest stars. Which statement from this passage is an example of an opinion? A. According to science, . . . the speed of light . . . is about 186,000 miles per second. B.
