This question already has an answer here:
Many believe that nothing can travel faster than speed of light, not even information. Personally, i think theoretically information can. Consider this following imaginary experiment:
Imagine we are living on a planet that is big enough for a, let's say, 10-light-seconds-tall tower to erect. We hang a pendulum near the planet's surface using a long thin wire at the top of the tower. If someone at top of the tower cut the wire then the pendulum will instantly falling to the ground. In this case we can say that the information "someone cuts the wire" travels 10-light-seconds distance in no time.
Since someone on the surface can only see the act of cutting the wire 10 seconds later, can we infer that the information travels faster than light?
