Is there any thing that can travel faster then the speed of light?
I was thinking of a way that could make light travel faster than the speed of light (299792458.0 meters per second). Suppose I am at the Equator, there is no atmosphere, every thing is happening in vacuum. I have a powerful torch and I position it in such a way that it is tangent to the surface of the earth, and is facing in the direction of the rotation of the earth on its axis and revolution around the Sun. Earth's Equatorial rotation velocity is 465.1 meters per second. It is 3rd of January, so the earth is moving the fastest around the Sun (30287 meters per second). The moment my torch is tangent to the orbit of the Earth around the sun, I turn on my torch.
Now, since my torch is on the earth, it has a speed equal to that of the earth's revolution around the Sun plus the Equatorial rotation velocity. After adding the two speeds together we get 30752.1 meters per second. After turning my torch on, it emits light, which is traveling at a speed of (299792458 meters per second) relative to the surface of the earth. We know that the torch has a speed of 30752.1 meter per second, so the light it emits should be equal to it's speed plus the speed of light, which turns out to be 299823210.1 meter per second. Now the light coming out of my torch is clearly faster than the speed of light. How can this be possible, if nothing can travel faster than the speed of light?
