# Faster than the speed of light and future travel [closed]

I had read somewhere that if a person attains twice the speed of light, he can actually reach the future.

1. But since the world belongs to one time and space, how will it change for one particular person?

2. And if a person actually attains that speed wouldnt his body burn out because of such high velocity?

It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form.

You can reach the future just fine by standing still. Perhaps you read they could reach the past by surpassing the speed of light, because of the logical continuation of the trend when you get closer and closer to $c$ (time goes slower and slower). Another possibility is not exceeding the speed of light, but approaching it and therefore having your clock tick slower so you can survive further into the future than people standing 'still' on earth.

@UweF i mean what the world is now will continue to remain the same in the future or will it change only for me,since i have reached the future? or should i say is time and space the same for each individual or it differs for everyone? –  sin Feb 23 '13 at 10:09
At the moment this question is suffering from at least two bad premises. Also, we've done pop-sci level faster than light questions before. And pop-sci level nearly as fast as light questions. See the "Linked" sidebar on physics.stackexchange.com/questions/7446/… –  dmckee Feb 23 '13 at 17:37
If there will be single time for all then the question of time travel doesn't arises –  Akash Feb 23 '13 at 19:06
