Can Anything Go Faster Than the Speed of Light?

any opinion?

This is a really interesting scientific debate that examines the speed of light and possibilities of traveling faster.  There have been some far out explanations about black holes that can warp light and the like but perhaps is that faster or slower than light itself?  And recently there have been discussions about “tachyons” or some kind of mysterious cosmic particle that indeed does travel faster.


The ever adventurous scientific video maker “Vsauce” asks this very question.  His explanations and examples may surprise you.

Do you think he is too far out there or does he pose some strong examples to ponder over?

Let’s find out what the narrator thinks could go faster in the video on page 2

    Time has nothing to do with it only actual velocity and perspective, it’s all general relativity. When the universe was younger and more dense light had to travel at a faster speed, there for it is possible, your perception of time is inaccurate . ….

    Thought doesn’t reach any where near the speed of light – not even the speed of sound! Research it, the findings may surprise you!

    Quark have not been directly observed .but theoretical predictions based on their existence have been confirmed experimentally .

    Dan Vincenty what does a photon particle look like? Better yet, how about an electron particle?
    Modern science is atomistic and thus- incorrect. Your [opinion] is the result of theoretical mathematical equations that have been substituted for experimentation.
    ..perhaps everything you “know” is incorrect.

    science is based completely on humans limited perception and that’s why it is full of theories and is always changing. It is way more limited than any scientist would care to admit.

    The answer is yes and no. When humanity learns the physical laws of man do not apply to the rest of the universe then just maybe we can take the next step. There are multiple theories #1 the wormhole, if you can simply cut a hole through the fabric of space and time. Technically you would get there just a bit faster.Cannot be proven false if backhoes actually exist#2 I call it the star trek theory. It would require a reactor with an ability to grab another place in the universe and simply pull you there. in theory your not moving through the universe, the universe is simply moving around you.

    … and perhaps somewhere in another dimension tied to our universe there is a being made of some strange form of matter asking, “I wonder if anything can go slower than the speed of light?”

    A warp field can theoretically move an object faster than the speed of light, claims Miguel Alcubierre, a theoretical physicist.

    What if light went through a black hole ? Trust me I’m not a scholar nor do I claim to be but in an atmosphere with with no drag it seems to me that it would only make light faster I’m probably about to be pummeled with math problems I don’t understand but that’s my thoughts

    Nassiem harreim created a scaling law log that states that everything is a black hole with that being said we have to move at the speed of light and I believe we moved faster than the speed of light and create entropy to create keep reality and existence if we did not travel at faster than the speed of light their existence would not exist
