A cone-shaped portion of spacetime containing all (future)
locations at which light could arrive after having departed from
a particular location within spacetime (the tip of the cone).
Points inside the cone can be reached at the speed of light or
slower and points on the surface only at the speed of light. Since
nothing can travel faster than light, points outside the cone
cannot in any way be affected by the tip.
