I have a similar logical "gap" in my understanding that I still haven't resolved... which seems to be right on point with this thread if I call it "minimum amount of energy required to accelerate a given mass".(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

From what I know about SR, accelerating mass takes energy which increases exponentially as this mass approaches c. I just don't know at what speed this effect becomes measurable...
