I was reading an article in a book and I don’t really get what they were saying.
Basically it said that nothing can go faster than the speed of light in a vacuum. Fine I understand that.
Then it went on to say that that wasn’t quite correct. It said that it is impossible to go AT the speed of light, but if you could cross the speed of light it would be possible.
In other words it bascially said you could travel at speeds faster than the speed of light if only you could CROSS the speed light travels at.
For instance if you’re going 50mph and you want to go 60mph you have to cross 55mph.
So if the speed of light is 186,282.397mps (miles per second) you can’t cross that but if you somehow could it would be possible to go 187,000.00mps.
If I’m saying this right is this so? If not maybe someone else has a clue about what this guy was writing about.
I hope this makes sense. I’ll see if does to anyone and if so then I’ll follow up
