Traveling at high velocity

  1. Jul 16, 2011 #1
    Is it possible to travel around an object so fast that you would be able to see the back of the vehicle that you are traveling in? Possibly if the object that you traveled around was small enough?

    No. You would have to travel faster than light no matter how small the object.

    As the poster above said, it is not possible due to the speed of light.

    And you always perceive light at the same speed c, no matter how fast you are traveling .
