I have discovered a way to travel faster then light...?
Tell me if this would work or not.
You take a really long pole, I mean really really really long. And swing it with one end connected to a point in a big circle in space. The end of the pole moves faster then the part of the pole closer to the pivoting point since it has to cover more distance right? If you do the math wouldn't the end of the pole reach the speed of light?

to make light appear at the location faster.
It would have been more interesting if it had been done with matter, rather than light.
Oh, and the reason you can't make an object move faster than light is because
it would require infinite energy.
There are of course alternative theories that get around this without violating it.

Or better yet, what can we gain scientifically by moving massless photons beyond the speed of light?...

Like we didn't know this would happen eventually. Now if you could just "attach" matter to these light packets and create the same system from here to Mars. We'll have light speed this century.
