I heard that when we travel near the speed of light we gain mass!is this true and if so why does this happen??

i have started reading the new book by Prof Brain Cox and Prof Jeff Forshaw call "Why does E=mc2"It has helped me greatly.

you need infinity amount of energy to travel at that speed.

when we apply infinity amount of energy on a mass half of it goes for its motion kinetic energy

yes it adds it self into mass so it becomes heavier !!
