What happens if the speed of light is ten times faster?, besides 
that we could possibly travel the stars. Why are stars so far 
away? It doesn't make sense, All these years scientist are trying 
 to explore the universe, but what's the REAL use if we can't 
even get there. Are we stuck on our own own planets? Or don't we get much 
older when we travel at almost the speed of light? Like a clock ticking 
slower when it's moving.
