I would like to talk about the speed of light and how so many people, even physicists, dont realise that light speed relative to its self is in fact infinite. What I mean by this is if you travel at light speed you in fact travel at infinite velocity, not 300,000 km/s. Is there any one here who realises this? I see so many people talk about is it possibile to travel faster than light or I see on space ship programs on tv "faster than light engines" etc and its all a load of rubbish! I will explain why this is. As you travel faster and start to get close to the speed of light what happens is everything around your ship starts to have severe time dialation. For example you could be in a ship and travel at close to light speed for a year and when you came back to earth 100 years could of passed. Now this means that as you get closer to light, everything around you moves faster and faster including the light so if you were traveling at say 299,990 KM/S relative to someone watching you on earth, the light photon and your space ship would be traveling at something like 1,000,000,000,000,000 KM/S relative to you and the light. If there was a camera on the ship and people on earth saw you talk, you would appear to be talking 1,000,000s of times more slowly just as if the person on the ship could see you on earth he would see you talking 1,000,000's of times more quickly. Now as you actualy hit light speed and people on earth see you doing 300,000 KM/S you are in fact traveling at infinite velocity, not 300,000 kms. You would arrive at your destination instantly thus you cannot travel faster that light because its traveling infinitly quickly relative to its self or any one traveling at that speed. This is why it takes infinite energy to reach light speed. Why would it take infinite energy to reach 300,000 KM/S??? It wouldnt. It takes infinite energy because you would be traveling at infinite velocity. The thing is though if you hit light speed/infinite velocity time would pass infinitly quickly outside the ship and so the universe would probabably colapse or something before you ever reached light speed so I guess its impossible. But i just wonder why so many people havnt worked this one out ????
