      Possibly one day if we could invent the technology. It would take a really long time to accelerate to the speed of light and just as long to slow down from it.

      Plus even if we have the technology to get something to travel that fast we’d have to make it so that humans can withstand the force of travelling at such speed. Imagine being on a really really fast rollercoaster and this might give you an idea about the force being put on your body.

      I’d like to think that one day it may be possible but I definitely think it is a long way off yet – maybe you could help get us on our way 🙂
