Einstein was wrong, the speed of light cannot be constant because it's immeasurable by his own theo

Experiment agrees with Einstein.

The recession velocity of objects at the edge of the observable universe, as measured by us, approaches the speed of light.

According to Davis and Lineweaver, visible objects may be receding at speeds greater than c:

Superluminal Recession Velocities

Expanding Confusion: common misconceptions of cosmological horizons and the superluminal expansion of the Universe

Enjoy!



If they are now superluminal, that doesn't mean they always were. When you look at an object at the edge of the observable universe, you are looking into the past. 13.7 million years ago things were a lot closer and didn't reach their present speed, or I should say their "apparent speed" until toward the end of the inflationary epoch.

Assuredly.

I am aware of this. In fact, whatever you look at, even if it happens to be your own big toe, you are looking into the past.

Quite possibly even contiguous.


and didn't reach their present speed, or I should say their "apparent speed" until toward the end of the inflationary epoch.

If the current model of cosmic evolution is correct, yes, that is true.

And now: just what was the point of all that?

Experiments? Tesla was an engineer. Pretty sure he had plenty of experiments validating his ideas as well

Just one possible link from today.
I will be astounded if this comes clean in the wash. Would certainly mix things up.

This still does not change the fact that space-time is curved and that c still remains the constant speed of light. Just because other things move faster than light does not make c wrong. Light still moves at c. This does open the door that maybe we could move through space faster than the speed of light without warping space-time. Still too early to tell.

Even if you could accelerate past the speed of light, the light reflecting off of you would still be stuck at no greater than c. The light directly in front of you would probably compress and slide off the side like some kind of light wave boom akin to a sonic boom.

We will not know for sure until the experiment is reproduced by other scientists at a different lab. Even the guys that made the discovery are not sure about their findings. We shall see.
