Can you tell me what that is relative too?The laws of physics limit speed to the speed of light, 299,792,458 m/s exactly. The meter is based upon the speed of light which is based on the second which is the amount of time it takes for 9,192,631,770 unperturbed ground-state hyperfine transitions of the cesium-133 atom.
Yes.I'm sorry Bill, but you are blinding me with science. In my simple words, I suspect that the speed of the object is measured relative to its own origin. It's temperature , colour and other properties being determined relative to its origin and not where it actually is any time later. Every other place except the origin would perceive the object based upon its own location. Would this be correct?
Indeed. One of the reasons Einstein, apparently, sought to develop relativity was for these reasons. He seemed to hold to the idea that the laws of physics should not have to change with all those variations in motions; physics should hold true for any inertial frame instead.P.S. Perhaps OP might have added "What is the maximum speed we can travel through space relative to? and, maybe, "assuming, at what speed is space(time) travelling?"
