Wouldn't that be the same thing according to the theory of relativity?

I travel through 24 hours of time every day.

You specified the definition of the wrong thing. We're always travelling through time and the closer you get to the speed of light, the faster you travel through time.

Light travel, but both are many many many years ahead of our current technology.

Dear idiots,

FTL travel is simply NOT possible. Not now, not ever. Lightspeed is the speed limit of the universe.

Every sci-fi you've ever seen showing FTL travel do so by cheating. From the Warp Drive in Star Trek through to the FTL drives on Battlestar Galactica, they all either go through some other realm of space, use worm holes or some such.

Why? Because nothing with mass can travel faster than light. It would require infinite energy and the spacecraft would achieve infinite mass, creating a black hole that would destroy the universe....

So? You're still getting somewhere before a beam of light.

You're just being obstructive now. I don't think you're trying very hard.

Um, well, I guess Light Speed travel
6 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Wednesday 10/3/12 - 11:59:12 PM EST (GMT-5)
Light travel, I don't think time travel is even possible, if it is, it probably will take load tons of years.

Sigh. Time travel, IS possible (if by time travel one means travelling outside the normal flow of time), and it has been done already, many times.

But it's fast forward only. And you don't travel far into the future. They have proven that if you travel from London to New York by jet , then about 40 nanoseconds less will have passed for those on the plane than for everyone else.

This is called time dilation.

Don't kids take science anymore?. The kids here seem dumber than sh*t about this stuff.

Time travel will never be possible. It's too good to be true.

If only, if only...I'd screw so many more people. Professors included.

Warp could be possible, at least if you have space ship with the mass of a few Earths. So I don't think we'll see it this year.

For an object with mass it is inherently impossible to travel at lightspeed. The term time travel is very vague..

Calm down...I just said my opinion, if it's not correct then fine, I don't give a crap.

both will be invented before multi members pm's.

Recently discovered solar partical that travels faster than light.

*according to our current scientific understanding
6 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 10/12/12 - 1:03:11 AM EST (GMT-5)
i think we're closer to light speed travel than we are to time travel, at least from the technology we have and what we understand about science.
6 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 10/12/12 - 2:03:08 PM EST (GMT-5)
The more important question is:

'If one is traveling at or above the speed of light, what happens when you turn on your headlights?'

I thought that claim was retracted. It was a miscalculation from bad calibration of the measuring equipment or something along those lines...

The light moves away from its source at the speed of light.


As anyone who owns a rudimentary physics book is very well aware!

so wait if i'm driving in a car is the light from my headlights moving at the speed of light + the speed of the car?
