I want to apoligize for being so late to respond
to your message, but I would like to thank the
kind scientist for the answers he provided for my
previous questions, and all of your help too.
Thank you. I also need some insight on the
following, I suppose I have to ask a question
because this is where I am supposed to do it: I
know there is a formula out there used for speed
or time dilation or something like that, it has
been reffered to when people say 'when you go
faster than the speed of light, time passes
backwards' I was wondering if you guys knew of
such a formula, it would be helpful. Thanks again
for those previous answers.

Answer 1:
Good question... you are mostly right. What
you are asking about applies to the theory of
relativity, which I encourage you too look up on
your own. My understanding is that we
currently believe that nothing can travel faster
than the speed of light. However, if you got in a
spaceship, and traveled NEAR the speed of light,
you and I would experience time differently. A
clock on your spaceship would maybe account for 1
hour, where my clock might account for 24 hours
passed. This, of course, depends on how fast you
are actually traveling. If you were traveling
1000 miles per hour, for example, there would be
no measurable difference... you need to get very
close to the speed of light. The formula
for time dilation can be found here: timedilation Hope
this helps!
