I'm not sure if this is the correct area to post this question, but I don't know where else it could go. If it is incorrect, can someone please move it to the correct area if that is possible. This is a purely hypothetical question, and I am by no means good at physics (just starting out). If it were possible to get something to go faster than the speed of light, then is it possible to view our planet's history in reverse? My idea of achieving this is to attach a giant mirror to the back of a spacecraft capable of faster-than-light travel. At a certain point, put the mirror in place and stop. Depending on how far you travelled and at what speed faster than light, you would see a certain amount of time in the past, by getting in front of the light. I have proposed getting in front of the light and stopping, because I am unsure of a way to reflect light backwards that is infront of you. If that was possible, then you could view our history in reverse. I would not be surprised if many things that I have said either don't make any sense to others or are completerly incorrect or impossible, but it has been an idea that I have wanted to ask others about what they think.
