virtually indestructible materials, say "adamantium." I want to know if this would be possible. Imagine a bicycle wheel, with the spokes and all, in your mind. Now, visualize the center of the wheel, where all the spokes more or less meet. Rotate it in your mind say at the center about 5 centimeters per second. At the center of the wheel it is moving relativley slow. But, at thhe edge of the wheel, maybe 12 inches or more from the center, the edge seems to move much more quickly. It really isn't moving faster than the center because the center and the edge are connected. Rather , the edge is covering more distance. Oaky here is where it gets interesting. Let's say it is the year 2500 ad and the United galactic Federation of Planets decides to build a huge wheel in space far away from any planets or stars gravitational fields. This wheel will be 1,000,000 miles in diameter and made from virtually indestructible materials, say "adamantium." Okay, they completed construction and this wheel has the ability to rotate at the center extremely fast. Is it possible to accelerate the wheel to the point where the edge exceeds the speed of light? Thing about the bike wheel. Can we implement the same reasoning with a million mile wide wheel in space?
