    sound needs a medium, and is longitudinal.

    Light moves through a hypothetical medium called "ether", and is transversal.

    Are you going to add an anti-scientific comment now?

    Light - Transverse waves

    Sound - Longitudinal waves ☀️

    Light.... transverse waves, sound...longitudinal waves.

    Light can travel through a vacuum, sound can't.

    Light is MANY times faster than sound.

    One (light), travels through a vacuum; the other (sound) does not.

    Light bends a little with gravity, right?

      Right, bit does NOT accelerate. There is NO aether. Goring I'd living before 1905. And Einsteins special anf general relativity papers. Any medium SLOWS DOWN the speed of light.
