You will become a "Jumper" that can teleport anywhere and travel to the past and future. :biggrin:
Well if you are driving in a car faster than the speed of light, and you turn on the headlights, then the light will probably 'follow' you behind. The faster you go, the faster the line of light behind you. Kinda like a jet going faster than the speed of sound, the faster it is, the longer you'll have to wait for the sound to catch up. The faster a car drives after the speed of light, the longer the 'stream' of light behind it. That's kinda my theory.
Q. If you travel faster than the speed of light, what happens?
A. You would start to go round in ever decreasing circles until you eventually disappeared up your own rear black hole.
Well here goes - see yaaaaaa - ouch!
First, what type of light? As all light colors are of different frequency, they must (by definition) have different speeds. In addition, gravity affects light so it can be slowed or increased in speed. Also, many consider space to be a vacuum, but its more likely filled with stuff such as gases and rocks, all of which affect the speed of light (like light through water doesn't travel the same speed as light through the atmosphere 1 foot above sand).
What would happen if you traveled faster than one of those? I think you would be ripped to shreds by all the small particles between you and your destination if you didn't have proper shielding.
It's kinda funny, I wrote NASA once about this very issue in the 1990s (traveling at high velocities without proper shielding) and asked if the person would be ripped to shreds or die of "radiation" poisoning. THEY said radiation poisoning, but I theorize "ripped to shreds" based on a "bullet" theory.
I was about to yell at everyone for failing at physics, and say that they need to take some modern physics courses. Then I saw some nice factual replies like snshusat's correcting everyone.
Quick summary: Accelerating a mass to c requires an infinite energy source, which does not exist.
Me happy now! xDYou too sir! Implied that through "replies." Sorry!
Nah! Don't give GOD all the credits for the misery that we have on the Earth.snshusat said:i wan't to go in my past nd change all my mistakes. but god is the greatest engineer nd he knows the ill effect of it. therefore he doesn't permit us to change our past. life is not a movie!
