Does sound travel faster than light?

I love sound but unfortunately it doesn’t travel faster than 299 792 458 m / s. Only very complex physics can give you some answers to what is faster than light. Sound does have the ability to still go pretty quickly depending on its medium.

Air isn’t the fastest medium (what sound travels through) for sound. One of the fastest is Diamond at around 12,000 metres / second. Still around 299 million metres a second off from beating the speed of light.

I have written a few more posts you can view below that are related to this post about the speed of sound. Even one with a rough guide to the speed of sound in various mediums. Sound travels all over the place unless its a vacuum like space.
