But those of us who live IN THE REAL WORLD hope/believe otherwise!!  I just tell it like it obviously is. So, in your "REAL WORLD", speeds of matter could approach or even exceed light speed ? You'll have to explain that ...

But those of us who live IN THE REAL WORLD hope/believe otherwise!!  Daniel Go to this page... http://hyperphysics.phyastr.gsu.edu...iv/ltrans.html .... and scroll down to the section called "Relativity Factor", where you find an online calculator where you can specify the rate of 'v' as a decimal of 'c'. Start with, for example, .99 and see what you get, then maybe (5) 9s then (10) 9s and finally use (1), meaning that v = c... and you will see that the answer is "infinity"... so NO, the smallest mass that you can imagine cannot attain a speed of c without requiring more energy than is contained in the entire known universe!

And yet... the formula nevertheless holds true! An infinite number of formulas hold true once in a while.  Q: Can you flick a laser pointer from the moon's N pole to its S pole faster than 18 mS or does the beam break? A: A spot of light or a shadow can travel over a surface faster than the speed of light. A spot of light can appear to travel at any speed. The Special Theory of Relativity sets c (the speed of light in a vacuum) as the speed limit for any physical object or packet of energy.  www.physlink.com/Education/Askexperts/ae497.cfm Darkness Is Faster Than the Speed of Light Discovery.com, 1 Aug 2019 Imagine you have a light that's powerful enough to reach the planet Jupiter. Imagine also that it casts that beam in a cone that's broad enough to cover the entire diameter of the planet. When you pass your finger over the lens, the shadow will cross the entire diameter of the planet ? a distance of 86,881 miles (139,821 kilometers). The speed of light is 186,000 miles per second (299,338 kilometers per second). So if it takes you less than half a second to move your hand that distance, then that shadow will have "broken" the speed of light.

You know how things tend to slow down as they get older??  Daniel
