definitely not speed of light

Except time and space would get horribly distorted at that speed...

why are all you smart people sitting here on funnyjunk, wasting time, instead of developing a ******* warp drive...god dammit people!

At the speed of GIF loading.

Goddammit, that is not what it looks like.

It would look more like this, also, see comment #55 for video proof.

You don't deserve my thumb, OP.

shouldn't the colors change a bit because of the Doppler effect?
And shouldn't your view widen a bit?
I saw something like this on Vsauce or something

To everyone saying "that's not what light travel would look like" - Travelling at light speed would be breaking a fundamental law of physics. "What it would look like" is an undefinable thing because it is impossible to do.   
   
Now enjoy these gifs I made. The middle is the earth, the white expanding circle is travelling at light speed and the moon is at the top.

This is not what traveling the speed of light would look like in this instance. You are obviously traveling backwards meaning your eyes are facing the direction opposite of travel- being that you and light are traveling at the same speed the last photons to hit your eye, thus generating the electrochemical activity required to see, will be 'used up' (The character limit is much to small to explain the actuality of photon-opsin interactions, but suffice it to say the photon is used up) very quickly and so until you point your eyes in your direction of travel (never happens in this gif) you won't see anything, because photons will be incapable of reaching your eye to stimulate it.

Oh and technically if you 'traveling' the speed of light you have to be warping. Humans have mass and thus cannot travel the speed of light, to 'go' faster we have to bend space.

the only thing faster than light is time.

Time is relative to your velocity, c (the speed of light) is a constant and therefore never changes.

Time dilation is the effect of time taking longer to pass relative to someone travelling at relativistic speeds (speeds close to c). If you read up on Einstein's special theory of Relativity you'll find that theoretically mass also increases noticeably when travelling at relativistic speeds.

I highly recommend you read up on it, it's very interesting indeed.

im sorry but that is overly too slow
#170 to #163 - generaljosh (02/05/2013) [-]
It is too slow. If it was at the speed of light, the entire journey would look like this (while magnifying due to light dispersion), because the photons would have zero velocity relative to the camera.

If it takes 8 seconds for light to reach the earth, and it takes 2 seconds to go from earth to the moon. How can that be the speed of light?

This gif took a while to load...either that or the speed of light is pretty ******* slow.
