The speed of light coming from space seems so unequivocal that we do not pay attention to its confirmation, even though it has not yet been measured.
Measuring the speed of light from space is possible. We direct the light into the diffraction grating. Behind the grating the measured speed of light is equal to the constant c.
With a Fabry–Pérot interferometer, we can measure the wavelength of light in front of and behind the grating. If the two wavelengths are the same, this is proof that light from space comes at the speed of c.
Measuring these two wavelengths, however, brings the unwanted surprise. The diffraction grating affects light in a way that has not yet been explained. When light arrives from a moving light source, the grating changes the wavelength of the light. In front of the grating, the light has a different wavelength than behind the grating.
Measuring the speed of light behind the diffraction grating and measuring the wavelength before and behind the grating makes it possible to measure the speed of light from space.
This measurement can change our view on the universe and may explain the existence of dark matter. So far, actual dark matter research has not yielded noticeable results. This may mean that we are researching in the wrong direction. If we research in the wrong direction, we will not get the result despite great efforts.
