Light speed travel is possible. Well, we got you there (or at least we think we did). It is indeed possible to travel at the speed of light, but only on one condition: if you’re a photon. And a photon is a particle that makes up… light. Now that’s out of the way, what about light speed travel using technology? There are specific models which can theoretically allow spacecraft to reach the so-called cosmic speed limit. And the proposed tech behind them (alongside the effects of actually traveling at light speed, as per Futurism) are the reasons why it’s a…
