Is there really nothing faster than light?

In summary: Milky Way have been observed to move at about 15000000 kilometers per hour.This is still quite fast, even for objects that are said to be unable to travel faster than light.I didn't want an answer to that. I just can't understand how that can be when nothing can be faster than light.

There isn’t, which is why the question is pointless. It is a distinction without a difference.

Might want to check your reference for the speed of light : it's considerably faster than a measly 15M km per hour.
The speed of light is 300,000 Km/sec

1,080,000,000 > 15,000,000

Still, 13% of the speed of light is scary fast.
15,000,000 is 1.4 percent of 1,080,000,000
