Default Speed of light.

The poll is about "time travel"

I just want to see what you people think...

You can't go backwards in time. Things going at the speed of light are theoretically passing through time slower than people not at that speed.

As you speed approaches that of light, your width approaches zero. As you cannot have a negative width, you cannot move faster than light. You can't ever reach the speed of light either, but you can get infinitely close, to the point where the graphs become asymptotic.

The time is moving faster. I saw a documentation in TV about that.

Going back in time, stopping time and travelling into the future is impossible. So is travelling at light speed. Light travels about 674480949 (or something) miles per hour. The highest speed ever achived by humans is 413 miles in one minute. That's 24780 miles in one hour. So about 674480949 vs. about 24780. So according to those calculations: Light is about 27219 times faster than the highest speed achived by humans.

CONCLUSION:
So all of this shows that beating the speed of light is.... currently impossible (it may be possible in the future).

P.S. I used calculators to save an hour of work.

But CL said it was impossible for other reasons too...

I don't care if it is impossible, let's just say that some how someone achieved that feat...

You can't even really get infinitely close, because, what would you use as propulsion?

No, spaghettification is what happens with a strong gravity difference, like on the edge of a black hole.

Travelling at the speed of light is impossible, as the closer you get to the speed of light, it takes an exponentially larger amount of energy to accelarate you. So it would take an infinite amount of energy to accelerate you to the speed of light.

The Infinate amount of energy could come From the left over kinetic energy

Once you go at the speed of light, you will burn up.

The same thing keeps being said: You CANNOT go the speed of light!

UNTIL you bring in the magical wizard of anti impossible!

So, let's say he gives you everything that you could possibly need(and twists the laws of nature and what not...), he made you go faster than the speed of light!

What would happen?

You prove that physics is wrong. You'll get a Nobel Peace Prize or something

A peace Prize? How does that bring peace???

ANYWAY, you don't burn up, the wizard is protecting you...

That would only happen if you were flying through an atmosphere.
