According to science, the fastest speed possible for anything is the speed of light. The speed of light is about 186,000 miles per second. That means that 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 around even the nearest stars.

1. Which statement taken from the paragraph is most likely to be opinion rather than fact?
A. When you see the Sun, you aren't seeing it as it is.
B. The fastest speed possible for anything is the speed of light.
C. The star nearest Earth is the Sun.
D. Humans will never travel to planets around even the nearest stars.
