Come on guys, we all know that when you get to the sky it becomes heaven
I was actually going to being that up but the speed of sound and the speed of light are fyeo entirely different things.
Going the speed of sound means you're going faster than the sound. For instance, if two planes were headed straight at each other at night at the speed of sound (say fighter jets), and nearly hit each other without knowing, the pilot of each aircraft would hear the other jet's engine after they had passed each other.
Take it from Xenonmagnum, he's smart haha!
I always wonder about the fabric of space and what it's made of...it's quite weird...they call it dark matter. It can flex according to planetary gravity, sun flares, worm holes, black holes, etc. Very creepy IMO this world outside our own
I wouldn't say they're entirely different things; one is simply at a greater speed than the other, so there are other factors that come in place with greater speed that make them seem different. Essentially, they're both speed milestones in our eyes.
The universe is a mystery, that's why we need to solve it! There really couldn't be any better way of understanding ourselves and where we originated, etc, etc, without space exploration. At least to the same point of satisfaction.

Which is not what I am talking about, but thanks for stating what we all already knew.
I just think we should send out probes and explorers to get scientific data of even our own solar system which is based mainly off of theory. I have interest in the topic of life out there, as I assume we aren't the only ones.
Worth mentioning that this study was flawed, and 4 independent tests have proved that Neutrinos can't go faster than SOL.
You physically can't travel at the speed of light though... that's the problem. You're made of matter, and matter physically can't travel that fast. If you were to travel that fast, time would literally freeze for you. You don't become light by traveling at that speed. Light isn't made up of matter, it's EM waves, that's how it can travel that fast. If the matter that you're made of could be converted to EM waves, then you could travel that fast in theory, but then you wouldn't really be you still. Matter can reach speeds very near the speed of light though.
I do know calculus and advanced physics, and I've read my fair share of books. We can detect black holes in other galaxies, but we're seeing them as they were millions of years ago, not how they are now. And the scientists do look outside of our solar system, that's what I've been saying. But for the same reason that we see a black hole that's 10,000 lightyears away as it was 10,000 years ago, aliens who would be looking at earth from 10,000 lightyears away see it as it was 10,000 years ago, before we started emitting radio waves. So our reach really is that limited. Like I said earlier, we stil haven't reached the far corners of our own galaxy, and that has absolutely nothing to do with how smart scientists are; it's a universal limit. So it's more than likely that there is intelligent life out there that we haven't found yet.
Great, next time say it nicely.
It makes sense from your signature.
What does my signature have to do with this topic?
I don't have to say it nice if I don't want to. It bothered me at the time that he was bringing politics into this discussion.
Separate names with a comma.
