I Think Faster Than Light Travel is Possible. Here’s Why

If you’ve been following my channel for a really long time, you might remember that some years ago I made a video about whether faster-than-light travel is possible. I was trying to explain why the arguments saying it’s impossible are inconclusive and we shouldn’t throw out the possibility too quickly, but I’m afraid I didn’t make my case very well. This video is a second attempt. Hopefully this time it’ll come across more clearly!
