How to Exceed The Velocity Of Light 2

  1. Jun 16, 2003 #1
    So what you're saying is that gravifugal force is essentially the anti-matter for a graviton. I don't know many things about quantum theory but I do know this: in quantum theory, every particle has an anti-particle such as positrons.
    Secondly, to achieve the speed of light, one must have no mass (such as that of a beam or wave). Yet how are you supposed to achieve faster than light travels? Do you intend to reduce your mass into the negative region?

    Greetings !
    QM tries to explain everything as quanta. GR tries
    to explain everything as geometry. QM fails when
    is comes to gravity, thus there may be no gravitons.
    GR fails when it comes to other particles. If and when
    a better and mutualy including theory is formed we'll
    see if it allows anti-gravitons or FTL travel.

    Live long and prosper.
