According to Einstein's theories we cannot travel at the speed of light, only close to it. There are many theories on how we can travel near (or beyond) the speed of light.

How long does it take to get to Alpha Centauri from the sun?

If you travel at the speed of light, 4.2 years. If you travel at the speed of the fastest space craft that we have now, such as voyager at 35000 mph, then it will take Approximately 134,433.2 years to travel that distance. Pack a lunch. And as per the hitchhikers guide to the galaxy, dont forget your towel.

Why can't an object reach the speed of light?

it can, we just dont know how yet, but when we do, i think that ther will be a great blinding light and then if we go faster than that speed, if you look backwords you will see the light trying to catch up with you It is not possible for an object to accelerate to the speed of light relative to its starting frame of inertial reference. At least, not in space as we understand it today. You may not believe this part: we are all traveling at light speed when we are at rest. Objects at rest travel through timeat light speed. Einstein said E=mc2 meaning that to reach light speed (c) an object must have infinite energy (no such thing) also as an object accelerates it gains mass until at c it becomes infinite in mass

How long would it take to travel 100 miles by car?

This depends how fast you are driving and if you want to include traffic in your calculation or not.If you dont want to include traffic, then divide the distance by the speed you traveling at.For example:If you travel at speed of 50mph then 100miles / 50miles/hour = 2 hoursIf you travel at speed of 30mph then 100miles / 30miles/hour = 3.333 hours = 3 hours 20 minutesIf you travel at speed of 65mph then 100miles / 65miles/hour = 1.538 hours = about 1 Hour and 32 minutes


What are mediums for light waves?

Light is considered a self-propagating wave. So it does not need a medium, which is why it reaches the earth from the sun. The mediums which dont absorb the light (and therefore allow light to travel through it) depend on the wave length of light. For example a gamma ray (has a very short wavelength) can travel through metal and takes a block of lead to absorb it.


Two differences apart from speed between light waves and sound waves?

the seriosly obviose one- one is for light the othe is for sound, if you dont know which is which then you need some help.....


Do all sound waves travel at the same speed?

sound waves dont always go at mthe same speed because they change speed depending what they are going though e.g. they go faster though hard things and slower though softer.
