Breaking Light and Einstein-Rosen Bridges?

  1. Jun 4, 2009 #1
    Quick question I don't expect many replies to, but I'm just wondering:

    Could exceeding the speed of light (if it were possible) be described as creating an Einstein-Rosen Bridge because of the accelerating object's relativistic mass? Yes? No? And if so, would it have any strange properties uncommon to slower Schwartzchild Wormholes?

    Travelling at the speed of light would not create a wormhole.

    I realize it would be making a wormhole, but couldnt it be perceived as one?
    To an outside observer the accelerating object would appear to be increasing in mass due to its energy, which at this point would be infinite.
