Faster than light information
I just want to make clear that I'm new here and I don't know whether this is the right place to ask such a hypothetical question. So if it's not, I'd be glad if someone could tell me where to ask. :)
Imagine you and a friend of yours were very far away from each other, let's say the distance is 1 light-year. Now you're holding a bar which measures exactly 1 light-year and currently touches your friend's shoulder. What happens when you move that bar (in order to poke your friend)? Will there be a delay? And what magnitude will that delay have? A year? Several years?
Looking forward to your answers. :)
