Time gets slow for an object when the object moves nearly with the speed of light. Does time slow down even for light?

Translated into English ... time slows down as you approach the speed of light, and ON A PHOTON .... time is stopped.

You need to study "advanced and retrograde light", to get a better feel for this.

There is no such thing as "Universal Time Rate".

ALL time is a variable according to local velocity, and the strength of the gravity well.

 

All time is local.

Time passes at a different rate at the bottom of a tall radio antennae, than at the top ... because at the bottom ... there is more gravity, which slows local time.

Remarkably, the question cannot be answered.  Einstein's theory of relativity gives the rate of time in any "inertial frame" relative to that in any other inertial frame. (Inertial frames are traditionally called Lorentz frames, after the person who first introduced the transformation.) 

According to relativity theory, there is no inertial frame that travels at the speed of light. Therefore, according to our current theory, the question is fundamentally unanswerable. 

What we can say is this: compared to an Earth-bound clock, the clock in a frame moving at velocity v progresses at a slower rate.  In the limit as the frame velocity approaches the speed of light, that rate approaches zero.

But that does not mean that the value at c is zero. To do that, mathematically, you must first show that the limiting situation exists.  According to relativity theory, it does not. Some future theory might give a different answer, but in the present day, no alternative to relativity theory has made predictions that show it to be correct.

I read somewhere that if push an object from here to outer space it will start going faster and faster.

And then flame. Like an Asteroid.

The stars are shining to us with or with out speed of light?:(

Poetic..the light didn't stop coming here from the stars becouse of our time. Our time is limited but not if we speed enough. ?.

To get one single atom to the speed of light would require all the energy in the Universe ... so the headlight scenario is impossible, but if we delve into the realm of "Star Trek" fiction, perhaps you have made a "Photon Torpedo"!

The question is much like the famous  "Can God make a rock so big that even HE can't move it ?"

    • Pretty much of what I had made mention of before, as of this was recent. A 35 year old Japanese School Administrator, Akihiko Kondo, could not handle being rejected by women and does not wish to be rejected again. But he has sought out a relationship that is clearly not ordinary. In order to fill that void and fear of rejection, he decided to find love b means of a Japanese character 初音 ミク otherwise known, in English as Hatsune Miku. Mr. Kondo spent $18,000 dollars (2031030.00 yen) on this wedding and walked around with a doll version of Hatsune Miku. That being said, there is a major problem in Japan whereas there is little to no relationships, thus putting the population of Japan at risk as seen by some. About 31% of adults ages 18-34 are still unmarried and or not in a relationship. https://www.hindustantimes.com/tech/japanese-man-married-to-hatsune-miku-hologram/story-2lq0cnK1BD6I5nMtfFA9fM.html https://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2018/11/12/national/japanese-man-marries-virtual-reality-singer-hatsune-miku-hologram/#.W_GPBzhKjIU Who is Hatsune Miku: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hatsune_Miku The First Hologram of virtual J-pop icon Hatsune Miku was present back in 2010-2011: Note: Hatsune Miku was not the only hologram some years ago. Rapper 2-Pac (Tupac Shakur) as well as Michael Jackson were also holograms who prepared in a concert-like fashion, the only difference is 2 are based on real people, the other is an popular Japanese anime character. https://latimesblogs.latimes.com/technology/2010/11/japanese-pop-star-takes-the-stage-as-a-3-d-hologram.html Only a matter of time until conferences and a list of other things will go hologram in this way shape or form, even communication also.   That being said, the stuff such as this on seeking inanimate things and or virtual as mates, well the VR chat thing is an issue, it will pose as a problem for young people into adulthood, as it has been as of late with some today.
    • I think almost every Republican alive hopes and prays that Hillary will be the Democrat nominee for the 2020 Presidential contest. She will  be more composed, and again re-invented herself, and will cut quite the fashion figure in her matching ensemble one piece orange jump-suit.
    • Thanks for the review
    • What a great actress Keira Knightley is. She nailed this part so elegantly. What a story of one of France's most successful authors. It also showed how a country girl was tortured by picking the wrong man. But on the other hand he did make her into what she became?
