Given all the information that we have from the show, is it possible to determine the Speed of Light in Futurama?

Like, we know that Omicron Persei 8 is about 1000 light years away and they are able to receive radio broadcasts instantly, due to the fact that those signals are traveling at the higher speed of light? Next, in The Route of All Evil it is stated that Fry, Leela, and Bender went to deliver a pizza to Dogdoo 8, but the universe ends at Dogdoo 7, it took them a week to go and come back. But we don't know how far away the edge of the universe is from Earth. What other statements are there from the show that could be used to determine the speed of light?

The ship can go 99% the speed of light. Cubert said the speed was increased in 2208. Nalexa (talk) 05:57, 5 January 2015 (CET)
