I guess we're really distracted from the topic.

Let me just clarify something: Newton never said a thing about the speed of light. E=mc² was all Einstein. It's almost nearly improbable for particles to go faster than the speed of light. There's an exception for tachyons and spacetime disruptions (intense gravity).

I'm not willing to say it's flat-out impossible to go faster than the speed of light because that's already quite fast. Most physicists agree that space traverse is not the best method for exploring space. It takes too long. Even if you go the speed of light or faster, time is still relative. As such, going so fast distorts spacetime around you. To anyone inside a spaceship, for example, the trip will be very fast. To everything around them, however, spacetime will have become so distorted that many years will have passed before they got to their destination. Even going at the speed of light, it would still take 4.7 years to get to the closest star.

Because of the incredible amount of time it takes to even travel a small ways, they say that we won't be exploring the universe in spaceships. That's just assuming that we'll be able to achieve that level of technology and understanding of physics.

I wonder if such a thing is actually possible.

That's very interesting because the idea that they used isn't new. The idea of a spaceship that doesn't move spacetime does around it.

I'm not an expert or anything, so I don't know if the rules of relativity work under those special circumstances.

Well the speed of light through a vacuum is seen as the speed limit of the universe but this is through normal linear space if you can bend space around you as you travel through it you would theoretically travel faster than light without breaking any of Einstein's laws.
Or so the theory goes.

This is of course, all based on the idea that Einstein was 100% correct.

A thousand years from now, most of science will collapse when it turns out that it was E=mc^3.

If it was E=mc^3then the first atom bomb ever tested would of blown up the solar system.
