Moonbounce

For my reference, the moon is approximately 250,000 miles away from the earth, and radio waves travel at 186,282 miles per second. A signal sent to the moon does not return until 2.7 seconds have elapsed.

So a one-way trip Earth-moon would take about 1.35 seconds.

Whatever did we do before Google?
