Faster Than Light

Einstein drawing on blackboard.

Albert Einstein in 1905 suggested that travelling faster than the speed of light was impossible, both physically and mathematically. According to his Theory of Relativity, which encompasses several relativity hypothesis’, the speed of light is invariant, or the same for all observers. This means that nothing can exceed that set speed, with zero exceptions. However, a duo of Australian scientists believe that Einstein’s theory is open for translation, and allows for an extension that might prove the theory’s “insurmountable wall” as not so unattainable after all. They believe that the equation to validate faster than light travel’s feasibility actually lies… read more
