Just a random thought or question. Why can't something go faster than the speed of light? It almost seems like some laws of energy or physics do not agree with light speed. Consider this; imagine earth pays to construct a light speed ship, and sends me up with a baseball. Once at lightspeed, I go outside, standing in my space suit, and throw the baseball ahead. Now the baseball is travelling at lightspeed + 40 mph. Every piece of science seems to deny that my ball could travel over the speed of light. So then what happens to the ball? We're at 0 G's, I throw it, and it just stays in space where I let go of it? That doesn't make sense either. I exert a force on it, so it should react. It should move where I throw it, unless some other force disables it from doing so, like a wall, or water. So what would happen to the baseball thrown ahead of a spaceship traveling at light speed?
