>A spaceship traveling exactly at the speed of light jettisons a smaller craft ahead of it from the front of the ship

Would the larger ship be pushed back or would the smaller craft not move forward at all?
>>
you cant move at the speed of light so the question is void

>but what if the spacecraft was 1 m/s less than the speed of light and shot a spacecraft out at 2 m/s

what is time dilation
what is relativity

Everything is relative. So to observes on both ships, who are not travelling at light speed relative to each other, everything behaves normally.

yup.

Meaning: You are jettisoning the craft forward meaning the added bonus of moving it forward from your light speed craft it would be going just slightly faster adding the momentum to put it out the front docking bay.... if the Craft slows down slightly it will hit the ship behind.. so generally a good idea to speed up out of it and away from the other ship...................


Yes you can.>>7779847

Well, that was over quickly.
