A new physics-defying theory describes the effects of faster-than-light travel

Posted by in categories: physics, space

Extended special relativity describes how the universe would look if you broke the speed of light.

Scientists from the University of Warsaw in Poland and the National University of Singapore are pushing the limits of relativity with a new theory called the “extension of special relativity,” a report from Science Alert reveals.

The scientists’ new study suggests that objects may be able to go faster than the speed of light without completely shattering our current laws of physics.


The new theory combines three time dimensions with a single space dimension (“1+3 space-time”), providing an alternative, mind-bending scenario to the three spatial dimensions and one time dimension we all know.
