Rotate a long bar in space and reach c
Sorry this is very naive, but it's bugging me. If you had a straight solid stick attached on one end and rotating around that attachment at a certain rpm, there would be a length at which the end of the stick would theoretically reach, with that rpm, the speed of light. Well, doesn't seem possible - what specifically would be the limitations that would prevent the end of the stick to reach the speed of light? What would happen?
