I believe that Einstein postulated that as an object accelerates, it's mass increases. I do not believe that his theorum states 'at' the speed of light, rather, as it 'approaches' the speed of light. I do not believe that any object upon achieving the speed of light can be held to our conventional understanding of mass.
