    What would you see/what would happen if you can somehow travel faster than light? :confused: :confused:

    Welcome to Physics Forums, 404.

    Your questions is kind of moot because we can't travel faster than the speed of light. Since the laws of physics don't allow it, there's nothing to speculate on.

    Yes. Imagine all impinging EM radiation (in the direction of your destination) being blueshifted to gamma-ray frequencies and higher. You're toast.
