what is the difference between the motion of light and the motion of sound?

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.
