What is faster than the speed of light?

was just wondering .. what is faster than the speed of light .. a bullet shot maybe?

Report as

Not even close. The speed of light is 299,792,458 m/s. A bullet travels at 80-900 mph.

I don't think there is anything faster than the speed of light.

I figured with not having a lot of mass, & yet still generating enough force and torque to not only stop the rotation of the earth but to reverse time, his ass was booking. I never bought into that speed of light crap anyway

By definition, scientist's have agreed that nothing is faster than that. However, they think space is curved, like a saddle (space is the saddle) , and we can "jump" off of the saddle to another point on it. Since light must travel along the saddle, it would seem that we would travel faster than the light that had to go around, ftl travel.

according to Einsteins Theory of Relativity, nothing, that obeys the laws of physics as we know them, can travel faster than the speed of light. certain things can be accelerated near the speed of light, but not past.if anything were to travel faster than the speed of light...we dont know what would happen exactly, but it probably would break something.

if anything can travel faster than light or exactly equal to the speed of light it will travel in time

Sometimes a bullet can travel faster than the speed of sound but not the speed of light.

An ugly rumor is something nasty that one person tells another about someone and people begin telling other people and it spreads.

bullets dont travel faster then light because the speed of light is the fastest speed we know of. and only some bullets can break the sound barrier. they come close but not breaking.

I forget the name of it but there is a theoretical particle not proven to be real but if it is it can travel at any speed faster than light but not slower

Nothing. The speed of light is around 186,300 miles per second, and nothing travels close to this.

a black hole is not faster then light. the gravity of a black hole is so strong that light cant exscape it. but good thinking.

Well interesting tidbit, everything is faster than the speed of light. The universe ( the observable one) is, at it's edge, moving about five times faster than the speed of light. So objects as they increase in distance from us move faster than they did before. If we changed our perspective properly then the earth and everything on it would be going faster than the speed of light. Although at that point because space it's self was moving the speed of light would increase as well... So nevermind.(:

Or we'd be going back in time toward the Big Bang :) anything moving faster than light, theoretically, moves backward in time.

Anything faster than light is just speculation at the moment. According to Einstein's theory of relativity, faster than light communication is equal to time travel. So, maybe if you wait around in London for a while, you can hitch a ride in a blue phone box and go faster than light.
