1. Why is the speed of a light wave the maximum speed attainable; could it be just the fastest naturally occurring phenomenon?
2. Why is speed in space a problem (not withstanding collisions/radiation/gravity of nearby object/etc.) when an object will drift forever once in motion? What slows acceleration in space assuming gravity and light hit equally from all sides? Formulas aside, if there can be acceleration at all, and a mass in movement continues to move, why would there be any limit in speed as we define it? Is there a simple answer out there so I can sleep at night?
