This brings to question some of Einsteins theories about what happens to humans when we travel close to the speed of light and faster.


Since DNA is the core of a human being and other life and would be directly effected by such velocities and that Einstein didn't even know about DNA when he published his findings and theories it is safe to say that discussions relating to what happens to human DNA as we approach the speed of light and faster velocities is open.


After all if we can come to understand what happens to our DNA at the speed of light and faster velocities we will be better able to build systems around the human body and other life to withstand the effects on DNA at FTL and greater velocities.


I think that the human body is more resilient than we think it is. After all the core of human DNA was born in the inferno of the Big Bang and at light speed and possibly even faster than light speed velocities.


Humanity wasn't born in the back seat of a '69 Nova.


A bullfrog with a light in its belly is nothing more than a glutton looking to shine otherwise.
