    The two known massless particles are both gauge bosons:

    the photon (carrier of electromagnetism) and

    the gluon (carrier of the strong force)

    Also, gravity

    per relativity theory traveling thru a worm hole is much faster than the speed of light

      Light is electromagnetic radiation...but not all electromagnetic radiation is visible light.

      As to your "monthly pay"...you can slow that speed down by putting your pay into a different medium...like a savings account for example.

    Photons always move at the speed of light in a vacuum.

      You're right Hammer. In fact photons always travel at the speed of light C in a vacuum. But when they travel into and through some other medium, their average speed c through that medium will be slower than through a vacuum. Which is why we have the refraction index N = C/c; where c <= C.

      Lon - gravitational waves and changes in gravity through the motion of a gravitating source , travel at the speed of light.
