light speed on the other hand is one of those things that you can say is possble but will basically be never done. Like travelling to the end of the universe etc.
.U do u say that light speed will be never done? Like I said, they have the technology to generate enough energy to do it. It's just damn expensive. And I mentioned g-forces in my last post, but actually when u leave the atmosphere there is no g-forces anymore. Also no friction so the spaceshuttle (or whatever they want to travel so fast with) doesn't overheat, start to burn and disintegrate.
And I'm not saying we reach the speed of light in 2 weeks, but look at the technology of 1944. That's WW2, and 60 years ago. Then what were the planes capable of flying? Maybe something like 100 meters per second? And now? Nasa has exeeded mach 10 (3800 meters per second), though this was done by an UAV, so really no problems with the g-forces. And modern figters can go past mach 2, and also there have been rumours of secret military aircrafts that can go more than mach 6, these being spyplanes with a human pilot onboard. If u are interested google for "project aurora" or things like that.
