The variation of this question was asked by minimum of ten people, unfortunately, in physics we are taught that we are perpetually restricted to sub-light speeds. When we get near to the speed of light and turn on the headlights, then what happens? According to your point of view: nothing happens, or at least nothing special happens. In case you place a mirror in front of you and look in it, you'd look precisely as you generally have. Truth be told, an astonishing aspect regarding special relativity is that if you weren't taking a look at all of the scenery passing you, you wouldn't be able to tell if you are moving at all.


In any case, from the viewpoint of individuals who are standing on the sidelines, things seem quite cool. Stationary onlookers would see that your whole ship (or race car, or whatever you're driving at 99% the speed of light) is compacted along your course of movement. In case you're standing the correct way, it'll seem as though you've lost some pounds and that your body will seem flattened under a massive stone.



They'd additionally observe your clocks – and your pulse, your PC cycles – running slow, your speech. Even if it is totally inconspicuous in regular day to day life, it still is the truth. Commonly on earth, it's an effect of around 1 section in a quadrillion, however at 99% the speed of light, you'll give off an impression of being running at just 1/seventh speed. The length compression and time widening conspire (out of scientific need) to influence your high beams to move at the speed of light to some individual watching you from the side. How a baseball gets an increase in vitality when you toss it on a train (which you shouldn't do, by chance) the light gets an increase in vitality too. The difference that exists here is that it doesn't go speedier; it simply looks bluer. In such situation, your headlights will be boosted into the ultraviolet.


The strangest situation is of two spaceships moving toward each other, both at 99% the speed of light. Sound judgment would say that captains of both the ships should see the other plunging toward him at a speed of light. Not really! One of the consequences of the constant speed of light is that every single relative speed will be less than what you think. For this situation, for instance, both the captains would see the other coming at him at just 99.995% the speed of light.



Back to the first inquiry, what might happen if you manage to get up to the speed of light? As you get nearer and nearer to the speed of light, time slows down and down compared to the stationary observers. So, in case you truly require a response to the first inquiry, this implies if you really hit the speed of light without a doubt, time would stop altogether, which implies that nothing could happen. But, that is alright, in light of the fact that you can't get up to the first spot.
