Let us take E=MC2. If we isolate C it gives us c= (E/M)^0.5 yet, by the principle of relativity, M increases as the speed increases thus making it more and more difficult to reach C. when C tends to 3 * 10^8, M plunges sky high. So, for us to be able to even reach C, we need E that tends to infinity. which is theoreticaly impossible. Give it up guys, we will never reach C with our present model (which seems to work)
