: : : Wouldn't it make sense that we could go beyond the speed of : : light??? The classic example: Theoretically-- If you were : : on a train going the speed of light, if a train could go the : : speed of light, and you took a step forward, you would be : : traveling faster than the speed of light... Wouldn't that make sense? : No according to Insteins theory of relativity going the speed of light is impossible.Say youre travelling 180,000mp/h in a ship that means the light outside the ship would be still and that is not possible.The only way to travell that speed would be to creat somethig that shares the same qualities of a black hole.An object that disrupts time and space which there by fold time and space.This would allow us to travel from any point in the galaxy to any where in the Universe.We would enter from one side and only really travel 100 y but in actuality it would of been the equivelent of traveling countless light years.This folding would be the same as folding a papper instead of drawing a strait line you fold it and mathc the 2 points then poke a hole through them. This would be the same as traveling through a black hole without the speed and gravity.
