No nothing travels faster than light, because of that over simplified E=mc^2 formula.
Essentially, the more energy, the more mass, the more mass the more energy, so if you were to be GOING the speed of light, you'd have to have
infinite energy no?
If anyone can scientifically disprove that simple explaination, or if they would like to elaborate with formulas, be my guest...
I used to think travelling faster than the speed of light was possible too, but when you think about it, why would you want to?
I mean, you crash at 30 mph and you have a good chance of dying, imagine smacking into a moon at 2.9989x10^8 m/s
Photons obviously have such little mass that they can travel at such speeds, because even a pebble travelling at that speed would blow your head off,
if not take a good chunk of your city with you.
Nay...I favor warping space, that's a damn good theory. Just like tunneling under a hill, where the hill is the universe, and you are tunneling
under it, to achieve a destination that in the universe, is farther than it is by tunneling.
