Angular velocity is allowed to exceed the speed of light, but not linear velocity. For simplicity, assume the molecule is 10 angstroms across (100 nanometers) and that it is an American trillion unit.

Then the velocity of the 'surface' of the molecule would be:

2pi(r) * (# of Rotations)
6.283185307179586476925286766559 * (r) * 270,000,000,000,000/second

= [6.28] * [1.00 * (10^-7 )] * [2.7 * 10^14]

= 6 * 3 * 10^7 m/s

= 1.8 * 10 ^ 8 m/s

Its relativistic. Getting close to the speed of light, about 0.6c.

Are my calculations correct?

I disagree, if scientists would quit trying to disprove anything that does'nt fit into there nice little model, and tryed to figure out if something can exist scientifically, than we'd be alot more advanced than we are today.

I do science for a living, and I guess I would say that science is about trying to come up with models for the universe we live in.

But when it comes to the profession, every day science comes down to making experiments that agree with the models built by the scientists on the commitees that you want to publish your work, so I have to agree with iori.

I wish that weren't true, but the really innovative science, you often have to fight to get published. Sometimes it can take a decade.

Forget it, bad post.

Sorry...
