Speed Of Light

  1. May 22, 2008 #1
    Hi All,

    I understand that nothing can go faster than light in a vacuum. What about the velocity of material objects relative to the speed of light in material media?

    Thanks in advance.

    Things can go faster than light in a meidum. Do a google search for "Cherenkov Radiation".
