Imagine if we travelled faster than the speed of light. If you ask Einstein, this is impossible. But researchers at the University of Adelaide developed a new theory and formulas to challenge this assumption. According to scientists, it is possible to accelerate neutrons at speeds that were previously unthinkable. Infinite relative velocity is the key. The problem is that when traveling in space, hydrogen H is transformed into radiation and heat that would kill passengers. While formulas show that it is possible, the level of radiation is unsafe for humans.
We have the OPERA experiment, with neutrons travelling nanoseconds faster than the speed of light. The results generated a lot of excitement. But they were incorrect. Einstein was right. Until we change our understanding of special relativity and the laws of physics, travelling faster than light will remain a thing of the future.
