Einstein Is Right

In Traveller anyways.

In reference to the previous post, any society with an FTL drive can measure the speed of light directly by "simply" motoring past their beam and receiving it then looking at the elapsed time for the distance.

Teleportation counts as FTL, so many fantasy and sci-fi settings could test the speed of light directly as well.
