All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident: Arthur Schopenhauer -- In questions of science the authority of a thousand is not worth the humble reasoning of a single individual: Galileo Galilei -- Science is a wonderful thing if one does not have to earn one's living at it: Albert Einstein -- When you have eliminated the impossible, what ever remains, however improbable must be the truth: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle -- We all agree that your theory is crazy, but is it crazy enough? Niels Bohr -- Whenever a true theory appears, it will be its own evidence. Its test is that it will explain all phenomena: Ralph Waldo Emerson -- Since the mathematicians invaded Relativity, I do not understand it myself anymore: Albert Einstein -- I would say that the aether is a medium invented by man for the purpose of propagating his misconceptions from one place to another: W.F.G. Swann: -- Most of the fundamental ideas of science are essentially simple, and may, as a rule, be expressed in a language comprehensible to everyone: Albert Einstein -- Physics is mathematical not because we know so much about the physical world, but because we know so little: Bertrand Russell -- If I could explain it to the average person, I would not have been worth the Nobel Prize: R. P. Feynman -- I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with sense, reason, and intellect has intended us to forgo their use: Galileo Galilei -- How dare we speak of the laws of chance? Is not chance the antithesis of all law?: Bertrand Russell -- Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I´m not sure about the former: Albert Einstein -- The glory of mathematics is that you don't have to say what you are talking about: Richard Feynman -- Anything is possible if you don´t know what you are talking about: Author Unknown -- In life, everything is relative - except Einstein´s theory: Leonid S. Sukhorukov -- Don´\'t worry about people stealing your ideas. If your ideas are any good, you´ll have to ram them down people´s throats: Howard Aiken --A day will come undoubtedly when the ether will be discarded as useless: H. Poincaré -- First they tell you you´re wrong and they can prove it; then they tell you you´re right but it isn´t important; then they tell you it´s important but they knew it all along: Charles Kettering -- It is not once nor twice but times without number that the same ideas make their appearance in the world: Aristotle -- The opposite of a true statement is a false statement. The opposite of a profound truth may well be another profound truth: Niels Bohr -- A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die, and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it: Max Planck -- Euclid taught me that without assumptions there is no proof. Therefore, in any argument, examine the assumptions: Eric Temple Bell -- Half this game is ninety percent mental: Yogi Berra

Ever since school, we are taught to the sad idea of the impossibility of exceeding the speed of light c=3·108 m/s and reaching distant stars located tens and hundreds of light years from Earth. Such a light barrier was erected on the way of Man by the special theory of relativity (SRT), the dogmas of which relativists guard no worse than the inquisitors who burned Giordano Bruno for words about the attainability of distant stellar worlds, fenced off from the Earth, according to the church, an imaginary barrier of the "crystal sphere". Likewise, the light barrier of relativists is more mental, psychological than physical. People have long been taught that they will not be able to climb into the sky, overtake the wind, exceed the speed of sound (3·102 m/s), go into space, breaking through the gravitational barrier. But even in the last century, airplanes and long-range ballistic guns were built that shoot supersonic projectiles [1]. Then jet planes appeared, breaking the sound barrier and exceeding the speed of sound at times. And rockets escaped into space, flying at speeds of tens of kilometers per second. There is no doubt that people will one day overcome the light barrier on starships flying hundreds of times faster than light. Moreover, physicists have been registering superluminal particles for a long time and accelerate electrons themselves to hyperluminal velocities, and only mental fetters imposed by the theory of relativity prevent this from being realized.
