Yes, they travel some fast!


Because gamma rays are exactly the same thing that light is, only with shorter wavelengths.


UV rays and all forms of radiation travel at the speed of light. Speed of light = 299,792,458 meters/second (source: Wikipedia) extremely fast, faster than alex holman taking a dump!


Neutrinos can be nearly as fast as light. All electromagnetic radiation (light, X-rays, gamma rays, radio waves, microwaves) travels at the same speed. Gravitons, if they exist, travel at the speed of light.


Gamma rays travel exactly the speed of light because gamma rays are light


Speed of light, about 300 million meters/second.


Light Rays travel in straight paths as transverse waves. It needs no medium to travel along.


Gamma rays travel at the speed of light because both light and gamma rays are variants of the same thing: electromagnetic radiation.


X-rays are a kind of electromagnetic radiation - similar to light. They travel at the speed of light through a vacuum - about 300 million meters/second.X-rays are a kind of electromagnetic radiation - similar to light.

If light rays did not travel through space there would be no way for them to reach Earth.


That depends on the type of radiation and sometimes where it comes from. Electromagnetic radiation (gamma rays, xrays, light rays etc) all travel at the speed of light; 3 x 10^8 m/s , regardless of their source. Beta rays & alpha rays are particles and can have any speed , less then the speed of light. Their speed will depend on their source. radiation (heat) from the sun also travels at the speed of light


about as fast as light


Light rays travel in straight paths as transverse waves. It needs no medium to travel along.


Light travels at the same speed anywhere in space. Radio, heat, and X-rays also travel at that same speed. 299,792,458 meters per second 186,282 miles per second So it takes approximately 8 minutes for the light to travel from the sun to the earth. which is mighty fast.


nothing they travel in straight line


No, x-rays travel at the same observable speed as any other electromagnetic wave including light.


If it is borne by wind blown dust and small particles, then as fast as the wind, potentially. If it is direct radiation like gamma rays, then this travels at the speed of light.


Copper is opaque to light - light can not travel though it.


-- radio waves-- microwaves-- heart waves-- infrared waves-- all of the visible colors-- ultraviolet waves-- X-rays-- gamma rays



It does not, it travels as a wave



It travel 186,000mph.(300,000kph)


Visible light and x-rays are both forms of electromagnetic radiation, and do not require a medium to travel through.
