Suppose you are in the Space Shuttle in orbit around the Earth at a speed of 7 km/s, and at some particular time your direction of travel is straight toward the Sun. The speed of light in a vacuum is 300,000 km/s. What speed will you measure for light from the Sun?
A)   300,007 km/s because your speed is added to that of the light
B)   300,014 km/s because your speed is added to that of the light and relativistic contraction has shortened the meter stick used in the measurement of the speed of the light
C)   300,007 km/s because relativistic contraction has shortened the meter stick with which you measure the distance traveled by the light in order to measure its speed
D)   300,000 km/s
