I truly agree that there is no problem with einsteins theory . he really outposted newtons theory and proved that newtons theory is a part of his theory but we can never be satisfied with that'cause it does not answer us with the mysterious questions about aliens and their universe I forcee that therer will soon be a theory whih would make einstein's wonderfull theory just a special case or a part of it.. For now... There is a lot to come be ready for some surprises.. : : : : : : : : : : : : : : Hi there. : : : : : Can anybody explain me why we go beyond the light speed.

: : : : : Thanks.Bye.

: : : : What do you mean???? Beyond the light speed???

: : : : If you mean why do we not stop with light as the fastest speed that's because light doesn't travel at the same speed. It all depends on the median in which it is traveling ie. water, air,space.

: : : :Since light has no intrinsec mass,it would take an infinite amount of energy to reach its speed (according to Einstein's E=mc˛),and your mass would then become infinite.Moreover,if you could go faster than light speed in the vacuum(300 000 km/s) ,you would run time backwards.

: : And technically, your mass would be infinite. Therefore, you would be at every point in the universe at the same time.

: :Don't forget, the earth was once flat. The speed of sound was unreachable. I wonder how strong those opinions were then. Wouldn't those who believed that love to see us now. : To think that light speed is the fastest speed attainable, is naive. It won't be in our lifetime, but there will be greater discovery with regards to light speed. Even Einstein would conceed, : 'E=mc2 is only a theory.
