time travel might be impossiable, but...

The faster you go, the slower time is.

What happens when you stop moving in space? Space stops and time takes over. So if you were to reach the speed of light, time should stop and space would take over.

What does that mean? That reaching the speed of light would be like warp speed. Get your photon cannons charged, our future is in star treck.

what is the speed of magnatism? Maybe the speed of energy is the speed of light. So if you spin a giant ring at the speed of magnatism, maybe you'll open up a worm hole that can be manipulated.

I don't see how else it might be remotly possiable.

There is nothing against which to measure movement in space, so you cannot "stop moving in space."

You are correct in that at lightspeed, time stops for the traveler. This means that you should reach any destination instantly when you get to this speed. Unfortunately, time does not stop for the rest of the universe, so if you're going to, for example, Alpha Centauri, then a round trip would cost you around 8 or 9 years on Earth, even at lightspeed.

Light is electromagnetic radiation so in that respect "magnetism" is light. Spinning a magnet won't open a wormhole, but if you could convince enough people that it will, then it might open their wallets.

Re: time travel might be impossiable, but...

since space is relative to matter, you can measure movement in space relative to matter. IE some where in between the sun and earth, you'll find a balance of energies. This may be the equivalent to being in deep space where no energies from other masses are touching you.

since light is electromagnetic radiation, then you can use electromagnetic forces to reach light speed.

SOU,
I'm sure that you would agree, however, that the Sun is actually moving in a long orbit around the center of the Milky Way galaxy, and the Milky Way is engaged in an orbital dance with several other galaxies known collectively as the Local Group, which are themselves speeding off through the universe at some unknown pace (since there is no still point to measure their speed at.)

Hence, how would one determine whether or not he had "stopped in space"?
