Live stream of the Washington press conference starting now.

" Ladies and Gentlemen , we have detected gravitation waves !" , that's how the conference started.
The waves detected were produced by two black holes circling each other then merging over 1 billion years ago.

You need to revisit physics my friend... There are already particles that are known to move faster than light.

and YES, Einstein's theories only preclude ACCELERATING to faster than light, not traveling faster than light. That is because as you approach the speed of light through acceleration, you gain mass, you would then gain close to infinite mass, requiring infinite energy in order to ACCELERATE to faster than light.

That inn no way precludes TRAVELING faster than light. Only accelerating to faster than light, which is why hyperlight travel is already being considered through warping spacetime as it wouldn't require you to accelerate any where near the speed of light in order to travel faster than the speed of light. Well, at least to travel distances at FTL...

The reason why light is limited to whatever "constant" is prevents anything else from exceeding "constant" too.

However what if there was a way to make C variable. Then you wouldn't need to travel faster than light speed if light speed is several hundred times faster than it is naturally and allows you to travel faster than 300,000km a sec.

But either way you aren't going to travel faster than light speed whatever that is set at wherever you are. Ie if you're traveling faster than "light speed" you are still traveling slower than the speed of light.

You still wouldn't be a tachyon. You would need to do some weird ass four wave conjugation in a bose einstein condensate or something to make "those."
