: Can we accelerate an object to light speed using anti-matter collisions ? Please consider this and reply. Any comments are welcomed !

I don't see anything special about using anti-matter. It would just be another source of energy and according to relativity theory, the faster an object travels, the more massive it becomes. So as long as the object that is accelerating has mass, it cannot achive light speed. It can come very close, but just not equal.
