Nothing can be said about an objects speed in space unless it is compared to the motion of another object. 1. Can an object travel faster than the speed of light relative to another object ie. our sun relative to the furthest star in the universe? 2. How is it that time can be affected by speed when nothing can be said about an objects speed in absolute space alone? Is it the speed relative to our local electro magnetic fields that create the effect? What is speed considered relative to when determining how much its time rate will be affected?
