Light Speed: Maximum Limit of the Universe
According to theory, the speed of light is the upper
limit for all motion. In other words, it is believed that
traveling at this speed or faster than light speed travel
or far beyond is impossible. One of the unexpected
consequences of Einstein's Relativity Theory is that as
any object approaches this speed, its mass increases
dramatically. In this manner, an object's mass approaches
infinity, an impossible situation that can not be
remedied. Strictly speaking a 'Speed' is a scalar quantity
whilst a 'Velocity' denotes direction as well. Both
will be used interchangeably herein; for example,
traveling at light speed or velocity of light will mean
the same thing for the purposes of this discussion. Here
are some values for light speed that a reader might find
useful:
Speed of Light in Miles per Second: 186,000 miles per
second
Velocity of Light in MPH: 671 million miles per hour mph
Light Speed in Kilometers per second: 300,000 km per
second
Light Velocity Kilometers per hour: 1,080 million km per
hour
Velocity of Light in Meters per Second: 299,792,458 m/s
Velocity of Light  A Constant 'C'
As discussed previously, the speed of light is the upper
limit beyond which nothing can travel. Matter, energy,
information and anything else in the universe are all
prohibited from exceeding this value. Many experiments
have been made to measure this value and it is known with
extreme precision. As a result, it has become known as
a constant 'c' for traveling at the speed of light in a
vacuum. The notation 'c' was given to the velocity of
light because this refers to the Latin word 'celeritas' that
means swiftness.
Travel at Light Speed  Physics  Einstein  Special
Relativity
In 1905, Albert Einstein published his famous work that
revolutionized physics; some of its most important
principles require that light speed 'c' was independent of a
light source's motion and also independent of the frame of
reference of an observer of that light source. His
motivation for proposing this many faceted theory was a
direct result of the failure of the theory of the
'lumineferous aether' or ether to produce a convincing
showing in experiments designed to prove the existence of
the aforementioned ether. In fact, the data
appeared to show that the aether or ether did not even
exist!
Pondering this evidence and that from other observations,
motivated Einstein to propose a dramatic solution to the
many existing mathematical puzzles that developed in the
latter part of the 19th century. He created a
marvelous spacetime fabric that produced the incredible
effects of time dilation, length contraction, twin
paradoxes, the massenergy equivalence E=mc2 and a constant
speed of light. This value 'c' plays an important role
in many areas of modern physics including those that are not
directly related to light itself. Therefore, a
demonstration that light was not a constant would be a major
blow.
Recent Neutrino Results
News is circulating around the world that the European CERN
laboratories have found a neutrino traveling at a speed of
light that is inacceptable according to theory. This
news alone should give relativists pause as to the certainty
of their ideas. But people love to follow the crowd
and refuse to even consider the possibility of errors in
what they have regurgitated their entire life. Expect
some public apologies from relevant CERN scientists that
will provide proof that they were completely wrong.
They won't want to lose their tenure and research
grants. What is really sad about all of this is there
is a simple way to see that E=mc2 and the postulate of the
constancy of light speed are both incorrect; therefore,
neither of these are representative in the original theory
itself of an Einsteinian universe. He himself did not
even use a constant light speed in his works of 1905.....
