: could someone explain what happens when (if possible) : the kinetic energy of an object with a given mass exceeds : that of its rest energy; Is it possible?

: Or is it only possible for the kinetic energy to reach : equality with its rest energy?

: (given of course the object has a given velocity : that would cause its gamma to be much much larger than : one)
