Scientists at the University of Adelaide in South Australia, however, published a study that expanded on Einstein’s original formulas. The new models, they say, suggest that speeds faster than the speed of light might be (theoretically) possible.
How? The scientists broke down existence into two categories: our observable universe, where everything obeys the speed of light limits introduced by Einstein, and an alternate universe, where objects can move with an infinite velocity — the latter suggesting that such high speeds might be possible.
Since the theory explores an alternate universe, though, there’s no way to apply it in any experiments. James Hill, one of the lead researchers of the experiment, says that the research could still prove as a key to understanding things like black holes and colliding galaxies.
