Something that has puzzled me for a long time is this:
If matter increases as it approaches the speed of light then why does the matter of light remain the same although it itself is travelling at light speed.
Surely instead of trying to travel at the speed of light engineers/scientists should be looking at encompassing light as there method of propulsion. "Going with the flow" so to speak.

I don’t understand the principles of anti-gravity but if meteors and even the moon can be held in this constant free fall, then can’t scientists use that understanding of how continuous free falling works, to make some sort of field/bubble around the craft that’s free falling so it always keeps falling like going down hill so there’s no need for fuel to push because it’s always falling.
And then you can direct in that field/bubble where you want to ‘fall’ up, down sideways etc. Is that scientifically possible?

If the photons are there simultaneously, then they either haven't moved (from our perspective) at all or they are moving so fast we can't detect it.
And how can something be simultaneously here and at its point of origin and yet still take a measurable amount of time to arrive?

So i had this thought, i know way am i a rocket scientist or nor do i know much about quantum physics, So feel free to correct me. we all know that mass gets heavier and heavier the closer it gets to reaching lightspeed. If Anti-gravity exists, (which i believe quantum theory supports) the issue with excellerating mass past the speed of light might not be so hard after all. If we can manipulate the gravity around a space craft, wouldnt you be able to mask the crafts mass by affecting the gravitational force around it??
Please this has been on my mind for sometime. someone plz comment,
and sorry for my spelling, i was about to leave work and was in a hurry.
Originally posted by DarthoriousOne other thing I have heard in quantum mechanics/physics is, as mass accelerates it vibrates, as it vibrates the particles move farther and farther apart which actually causes the mass to become less dense and decreases the "weight" of the mass by the vibrations causing it to be dispersed over a larger area of space.
