    I didn’t check all the figures, but 12 million miles a minute is a little on the high side for the speed of light — to the nearest mile per minute it’s 11,176,944, in vacuo. That’s poetic license for you!
    See Katie Melua’s bad science for an amusing exchange between Katie Melua and Simon Singh. I have heard her sing Mr Singh’s amended lyrics; they didn’t flow quite as well as the original!
