Speed of Light Achieved?

When do you think people will build spaceships capable of traveling at the speed of light? My personal guess is the year 2492. Any comments or views?

Answer #1

I know that by making a strong electro-magnetic field around a body, the particles in that field can break outrun the speed of light. It hasn’t been proven, but on paper it makes sence. You power up your ‘’spaceship’’, and you travel infinite times faster than the speed of light, without having the consequences of mass. Star Wars is possible :P

Answer #2

If an object traveled at light speed it would cease to be the aforementioned object. According to Einsteins theory of relativity an object mass increases as it speeds up so at light speed an object would have infinite mass. Makes you wonder how black holes suck in light though doesn’t it. So perhaps Einstein’s theory isn’t all that it’s cracked up to be. shrug So no I don’t believe that a ship could travel at light speed, information however can. So perhaps if there were a computer large enough and complicated enough that it could record every little atom of our being disassemble and reassemble them back together then we could possibly travel at light speed, just not in a ship. “Beam me up Scotty” (Star Trek)

Answer #3

Not sure, though I’m fairly certain no human being would survive traveling at such a speed.

Answer #4

you can’t exceed the speed of light. it’s the universal speed limit.

Answer #5

A scientist has created a gadget that can make radio waves travel faster than light. http://funadvice.com/r/3k5miv01h7

The above article does backup and prove the theory. The ship is still being broken down and transmitted like information, not as a complete ship.

Answer #6

Hardly, chances of it happening is very rare. If there is one, we would die if we move at such high speed.
