Can you travel faster than the speed of light? My theory.

Lets think this through first. Scientists always compare everything to the speed of light, because they believe that nothing can travel faster than it. Now this is theoretical, not real.

If you had a space craft, or some machine that could travel the speed of light, and walked through the ship, would you not be travelling faster than light?

If the space ship is travelling at 299,792,458 ms-1 (the speed of light), and you walk through it at 1 ms-1, then 299,792,458+1=299,792,459, which is faster than the speed of light.

Steven hawking already proved this wrong. He said that once you're at the speed of light, time goes by slower or some **** and it won't let you break the light barrier.

Good idea, but right now i agree with the scientists because the only thing right now that can travel at the speed of light is, funny enough, light, so this space ship is impossible to travel at that speed.

If however sometime in the future things apart from light can easily travel at the speed on light then, yes i'm guessing you could.

But I really don't think you can make anything that travels at the speed of light.

Good theory though

My Opinion Is, Are You A Physicist?
No?
Then Your Talking Smack. At Least Physicists Know What They're Talking About.
Your Homework Is: Realise G-Force Exists, if you cant move on a rollercoster because of it can you walk at the speed of light?.

if something goes the speed of light it theoretically becomes infinitely larger than the universe, making it impossible

The germans done it with a particle accelerator. remember they tried to create a black hole/dark matter to try to recreate the big bang. Well that particle went faster than the speed of light e.g Time travel.
Space time paradox right there mate
Physics as we know it is ****.

It cant become larger than the universe because the universe has no "end" if you mean bigger than our Solar system then still no beacuse things dont expand in space beacuse that would require matter which there is none of in space and if there was we could make new planets and everything would be inifinite
