# If you're in your car & you're going twice the speed of light & you turn on your head lights would they work?

Yes, but only if Steven Wright is driving.

Assuming that you could go that fast, which according to physics is not possible, you would be traveling twice as fast as the light from the headlamps and hence they would work but you would not enjoy any illumination from them.<br />

Plus you should not go that fast at least in LA. The cops will nab you.

No at these speeds in car they would have fallen off.

haha

well it seems to me that your headlights will already be going at 2 times the speed of light so when you switch them on they will shine at 3 times the speed of light thus causing a chain reaction explosion starting with your car and ending with the destruction of the universe . you shouldn't encourage people to do such things ....:-)

lol

Of course it will. Just by being in the car it is already going 65 mph. Whether or not the remote cars engine can continue to achieve that speed once it looses momentum is another story.

Of course! However you'd have to look in the rear-view mirror to see them.

Yes, but they would be illuminating the area behind you. They in effect would be back up lights!

If you're going with the theory of relativity while incorporating the theory of "special relativity," while effectively assuming all other theories and facts of science are not also in play, but rather just the issue of the speed of light, yes they would work.. but you wouldn't see them, as you would be "getting" to where the beams of light were "going." Sort of like when you're somewhere, like a store or mall, and you're to meet someone at, say the big clock in the food court, and you get their ahead of them, you're not going to see them until they arrive.

They would go on but, would not radiate light rays. Then again, it also depends on which direction you're traveling. LOL

Is it a Wednesday ?????
