: according to Einstein's Theory of Relativity, nothing. Nothing could travel faster than the speed of light. It takes an infinate amount of energy to travel the speed of light (Einstein's E=mc^2), therefor to travel faster than the speed of light, you would need more than an infinate amount of energy which, obviously, is impossible. But that is only a theory, just like everything else.
