A good question. Light can not exactly move an object into space but once an object is in space the light from the sun can be used to move it, and I don't mean solar panels harnessing electricity. A probe can actually have a "sail" like panel protruting from it that can harness radiation being given off by the sun and use it like a sail boat does to harness energy for movement. You might have heard the term solar wind which is basically the same idea. Believe it or not, space probes and other vehicals can obtain pretty fast speeds just by using solar wind. Hope this information was helpful.

Can Naruto move faster than light?

No. No object can move faster then light. However, Minato Namikaze (the Fourth Hokage) and Uchiha Madara posses the ability to move at speed nearing the speed or light, or the speed of light itself, utilizing the space-time ninjutsu.


How do you make a shadow smaller?

*Move the object closer to the light source. *Move the screen further from the object. *Move the light source closer to the object.


How do you make a smaller and clearer shadow when you can not move the object?

Move the light source farther away from the object.


Are there shadows in space?

There are shadows in space... There are shadows in space because when an object block another object from the light of stars near the object and the shadow hit the object behind it then a shadow is made!! By Joshua Aguiza


Can any object move with the velocity of light?

No object that has mass when it's just sitting there on the table can move at the speed of light. Photons have zero "rest mass".


What object in space gives out visible light?

Stars emit visible light.


Can an object move with speed of light?

Yes, photons do.


How does light work with no gravity?

There is no friction in space. Because of this, anything in space that moves in space will keep going forever unless an force equal to the amount of force used to move the object is used to slow or stop it. Same goes with light, which will continue moving through space until it encounters an obstacle.


Which would take less force to move a heavy object or a light weight object?

When you include the effects of friction, it takes less force to move a light-weight object. If you can get the objects into a frictionless environment, then any force, no matter how small, can move any object, no matter how heavy.


Why there are shadows in outer space?

Anywhere where there is light, and an object able to block the light, there will be a shadow.


What is an object in space that emits light?

The only things that do are stars.


What object in space gives its own heat and light?

stars


What is a object in space that makes its own heat and light?

A star!


When an object move are the force acting on it?

Not necessarily. An object doesn't need a force to move, only to CHANGE its velocity. In empty space, an object can continue moving indefinitely without any force.


Is it really no objects can't move in the speed of light?

Yes it is..Therotically no object can move in the speed of light.But now scientists are trying to find the conditions for which a particle can move in the speed of light. No, anything massless can (and must!) move at c. No object carrying mass can ever move at c.


Why cant sound move through space but light can?

Sound can.


What happens to the shadow when the light is close to it?

If you move the light source closer to the abject, the object will get bigger. =^w^= ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ The size of the object does not change. What kind of a retard are you.


What does it mean when light is scattered?

It means that even if, before striking an object, light rays move parallel, after striking the object they will go into different directions.


What three things are needed to cast a shadow?

Light, space, and an opaque object.


How can light waves move through space?

Light waves, unlike sound, do not require a medium.


How fast did the universe expand during the big Bang?

We cannot know for sure, but we're sure that the universe expanded faster than the speed of light. While it is physically impossible for any object to move through space faster than the speed of light (according to Einstein's theory of relativity), it is possible for space itself to expand faster than the speed of light since it is not an object, but the area in which all objects and laws of physics are contained. In fact, space is still expanding faster than the speed of light.


Which object in space produces rather than reflects light?

All stars produce light rather than reflecting light.


How fast can objects move in space?

The limit is the speed of light; any material object can go just below the speed of light, but never quite reach it.The limit is the speed of light; any material object can go just below the speed of light, but never quite reach it.The limit is the speed of light; any material object can go just below the speed of light, but never quite reach it.The limit is the speed of light; any material object can go just below the speed of light, but never quite reach it.


What causes the light from far away galaxies to bend?

If the light from a distance galaxy passes near a massive cosmic object, then the gravity of that object will distort space-time. That will cause the light to bend.


How do I get space from my USB flash drive to my system storage on my Playstation 3?

You can't move memory space from object to object, but you can use the USB drive to hold items from your PS3's storage to make space. Just move saved files from the PS3 hard drive to the USB drive to do that.
