    Why Space Travels Faster Than Light | Unveiled

    Why Space Travels Faster than Light Up until the early 1990s, it was generally accepted that universal expansion was “a thing”, but that it had to be slowing down. In theory, the fundamental force of gravity should one day overcome the force of the expansion – grinding it to a halt. However, by the turn of the millennium, new observations had shocked scientists by proving that expansion wasn’t slowing down and was actually accelerating. This is Unveiled, and today we’re answering the extraordinary question; How is it that space travels faster than light? Are you a fiend for facts? Are you constantly curious? Then why not subscribe to Unveiled for…

    Cherenkov Radiation: What If Something Travels Faster Than The Speed Of Light?

    Have you ever noticed that when a supersonic military aircraft passes overhead at a very high speed, it leaves a thunderous boom in its wake? That tremendous cracking sound actually has a formal name – a SONIC BOOM. This intense phenomenon occurs when an object – in this case, an aircraft – travels faster than the speed of sound in air. This might naturally lead to the question does light also have a sonic boom equivalent? Does anything unusual happen when something travels faster than light? In 1934, a Soviet physicist named Pavel Cherenkov observed that a water bottle emitted blue light when bombarded with radiation. This blue-colored light was…
