It depends who is running what equipment

True action at a distance communications do not have delay times. Your assumption is based on the current knowledge of public education, which is not how it works in science.

Current science also states that shooting stars are not millions of years old or "light years" away in time, but could actually be only minutes old, or possibly, happening instantaneously.

This concept described above was how it was discovered 100 years ago, and in our arrogance, we as a people have embraced the "we know all" form of stupidity of Einstein thinking. It was also this thinking that caused Einstein to kill 100+ naval officers in a horrible accident because he had no idea what he was talking about.
