Mankind is a great civilization that constantly creates miracles. It took only a few hundred years for mankind to go out of the earth and explore the universe since the industrial revolution. This is a miracle in the history of civilization. With the great development of science and technology, human beings can learn more about the universe and realize the insignificance of the earth and human beings.
Although it has been decades since human beings went out of the earth to explore the universe, our understanding of the universe is still very little, and an important factor restricting human exploration of the universe is speed. The speed of spaceships is too slow. We can’t go out of the solar system to explore exoplanets. We can only stay in the solar system. Fortunately, we have invented astronomical telescopes and other sharp tools to observe some galaxies and celestial bodies in the deep space.
Human beings have always imagined that if only the spaceship could fly at the speed of light, although according to Einstein’s theory of relativity, the speed of an object can only be infinitely close to the speed of light, but scientists don’t believe this evil. Can’t the speed of light be realized? If it can’t be realized, human beings will always be trapped in the remote galaxy of the solar system, and the future of human civilization will not be greatly developed.
In order to realize the speed of light flight, scientists are constantly studying and guessing, and many people have raised many topics about the speed of light, such as whether time will stop in the speed of light flight? There are many topics about the speed of light, such as whether the speed of light can achieve immortality. What we are going to dig up today is the story of a bullet. A question has been raised: can a bullet travelling at the speed of light penetrate the earth?
Many people may say that a bullet flying at the speed of light should be able to penetrate the earth. Others may say that it depends on the quality of the bullet. If it is an ordinary metal, the bullet is very fragile under the speed of light. Once it touches the earth, it disintegrates and cannot penetrate the earth. Scientists’ explanation for this is: the bullet flying at the speed of light hitting the earth is not only a simple breakdown, but will destroy the earth. Why? Now let’s give an explanation to the above.
I believe many friends have heard of a kind of space-based weapon, which is mounted on a satellite or space station in outer space. It is a very hard iron rod, that is, an enlarged version of the bullet. Although the iron rod is not long and thin, once it falls from outer space to the earth target, its power is no less than that of a nuclear bomb, or even far stronger than that of a nuclear bomb. It can easily destroy a weapon It’s a city.
The principle of space-based weapons is also very simple, that is, using the acceleration of a free falling body, the faster the speed is, the more powerful it will be when it hits the ground. Why is that? This also starts from Einstein’s theory of relativity. According to Einstein’s theory of relativity and the formula of mass and energy, we know that when an object is faster and faster, its mass will be larger and larger, and its energy will also be larger and larger. An insignificant iron bar may not have much mass when it is still, but when it falls from space to the earth faster and faster, its mass will be smaller It will also continue to increase and gather energy. When it hits the ground, the huge energy will be released, resulting in great destructive power.
Then, let’s talk about the bullet flying at the speed of light. If any object with static mass wants to reach the speed of light, it must have infinite energy to accelerate it. When it reaches the speed of light, its mass becomes infinite. Imagine a bullet with infinite mass and energy hitting the earth at the speed of light, which just pierces the earth through a hole?
Of course, things will not be so simple. When a bullet flying at the speed of light hits the earth, it will not only penetrate the earth, but also explode. You may think that it is just a small bullet, but when it flies at the speed of light, its mass may be very, very large, not less than the mass of the earth, which is equivalent to the impact of a planet with the mass of the earth If the earth is destroyed, do you think the earth can still have it?
It can be seen that the impact of a bullet flying at the speed of light on the earth will not result in drilling, but in real destruction. From here, we can also see that the speed of light technology is an epoch-making technology, and it is also an important threshold of civilization. Human civilization will usher in a new era beyond the past, and really have a strong foundation in the universe. The speed of light technology can not only enable human beings to fly at the speed of light and go out of the solar system to explore more distant galaxies, but also produce kinetic energy weapons based on the speed of light technology.
This kind of weapon is a bullet that can fly at the speed of light. Just imagine who can stop such a bullet. The spaceship of alien civilization can’t stop it, and a planet can’t stop it. As long as it hits, the planet will be destroyed. The universe is also the jungle. When human beings go out of the solar system to explore, it is inevitable that they will encounter other alien civilizations. If we are not strong enough, we may be beaten. But if we have this kind of light speed kinetic energy weapon, alien civilizations want to bully us, and they also need to see if they can withstand the power of light speed bullet.
These ideas are very good, but it is not so easy to develop the speed of light technology. Under our existing laws of physics, the speed of an object cannot reach the speed of light. But science has no end. What we can’t do today doesn’t mean we can’t do in the future. We believe that sooner or later, human beings will master the speed of light technology, realize the speed of light flight, and become a powerful civilization in the universe.
