Light travels through space at a constant speed of 186,000 miles per second. Time, on the other hand, is a relative quantity that sometimes passes more slowly and sometimes more quickly, depending on the observer’s point of view and speed.
This fact was described by Albert Einstein in his famous theories of relativity. By extension, the physics genius also came to the realization that time stops when the speed of light is reached. In this video we’ll take a look at why this is so and whether we humans can somehow take advantage of this effect.
