is it possible to travel faster than light ???

FTL refers to transmitting information or matter faster than c, a constant equal to the speed of light in a vacuum, 299,792,458 meters per second, or roughly 186,000 miles per second. This is not quite the same as travelling faster than light, since: * Some processes propagate faster than c, but cannot carry information (See the Apparent FTL section in this article). * Light travels at speed c/n when not in a vacuum but travelling through a medium with refractive index = n (causing refraction), and in some materials other particles can travel faster than c/n (but still slower than c), leading to Cherenkov radiation. SO WHAT DO YOU SAY GUYS
