B Warp Drive and constant speed

  1. Jun 25, 2017 #1
    If you were in a warp drive space ship traveling at say 2c. Would all observers see your ship traveling at 2c?

    You can't travel at 2c (twice the velocity of light in vacuum)! This violates the postulate of special relativity. Massive objects cannot even travel at the speed of light $c$. So you can modify your question to make it meaningful so that someone can help.

    Welcome to the PF. :smile:

    Your question is based on a false premise, so it cannot be answered scientifically. Thread is closed.
