Question

Russell G. Yoskowitz asked:

If we were to develop a spacecraft to travel at very high speed or near the speed of light (time travel) through space; wouldn't even a tiny grain of rice pose a serious danger? Is it possible to avoid all drifting space debris at this speed?

 

Thank you for your time

 

Regards;
