    The velocity of light is maximum in vacuum.

    It only appears to slow down because there is a delay for a photon to re-emit after being absorbed by a particle in a medium. There is no particles for the photons to interact with so it doesn’t get absorbed by any particles and appears to travel at the maximum speed in a vacuum. The speed of light is always the same in all medium.
