Can U please describe the apparatus and the method which is used to measure the speed of light in a laboratory. Is it possible to measure its speed without interfaring with light in any way. A related(?) question : How do we know that the particles in the particle accelarators are not moving at speeds higher than that of light when all we measure is energy of these particles that is a product of mass and velocity. Have we been able to confirm that actually the mass increases and speed remains les than C. ( By the way John if U are reviewing this question kindly excuse my arrogance in my earliar question, so far U people have been a great help in my quest.)
