Will Humans Have Access to the Light Speed Eventually?
Humans have achieved so many things in the past 100 years. However, it seems there are so many things that they cannot achieve so easily, or maybe never…
One of them is the light speed. Do you think they will finally become able to move with the light speed?
I think that human can achieve that milestone whether on this century or at most the next one. The possibility of light-speed travel was made possible by Einstein’s theory on relativity that was introduced in 1919, one hundred years ago. However, after a century passed, we have not found a practical means to travel at the speed of light. However, NASA mention three possible ways to travel at the speed of light, Electro Magnetic Fields, Magnetic Explosions, and Wave-particle Interactions.
Maybe we need another century to really develop a practical application of light-speed travel.
It will take quite a lot of innovation and time to reach that feat. The speed of light is supernatural 😎
The speed of light is the highest speed. I feel humans can achieve it with time.
I’m not sure that the technology and innovation can reach that point. The speed of light incredible 229.792.558 m/s
That may never happen because it’s beyond human understanding. Probably God won’t allow human beings to do because it might have dire consequences.
I think it will happen eventually. There have been massive technological advances in the last 100 years.
We started off with propeller aircraft now we have jet engines, in the 1960’s we sent man to the moon and now we send them up into space and bring them back in the same craft. We have built a space station where astronauts live for a period of time. Now we have unmanned craft on a couple of planets to search for life.
I think it is inevitable.
I think with the development of technology and innovation, we will be able to access the light speed in the future. Scientifics are working everyday to achieve it. They have already invited the gravitational wave that will eventually allow them to access the light speed an travel the time.
Eventually is a strong word. Probably they would have access to light speed in future but would take a lot of hard work and dedication to achieve that.
Sometime in the future with all the space exploration I think it may be developed. Probably by a descendant of Elon musk.
It will be possible in the future, with the progress of new technology.
For a particle to travel at the speed of light it has to transform into a photon. So if you want to travel at that speed you’ll also have to become pure energy and you must forget about ever changing back into matter or worse still ,into a living being.
Oh David – you’ve spoilt it for everyone with your common sense answer!! We always need to dream of the impossible 🙂
Sorry about that, Gareth.
With the invention of the Gravitational wave that will eventually allow scientifics to access the light speed in the future .
All scientists are dreaming to see that event. The impossible becoming possible, i strongly believe that it will happen in the future.
I don’t think that is possible to have light speed, no matter how much technology have advanced. However, light speed rate in seconds.
The world is progressing every day and the scientistsand technologists have not say their last words. Their are many things nowadays that on one could believe 100 years ago that it would be now. Nothing is impossible.
