The tachyon is a hypothetical subatomic particle. These particles travel faster than the speed of light. These are hypothetical particles because this is only available in the theory and not proven yet.
The idea has been born by the three Indians scientists and up to now, there is no proof found in the universe. some scientists believe that it has been found in the universe.
Well, we will discuss this theory in brief ahead in this article. Let’s know this theory in more detail.
Point by Point
The Gerald Fienberg scientist in 1966 has also brought the idea regarding the same. The tachyons name has been placed by Fienberg and he called this phenomenon as “Possibility of faster than light particles.” Since then, we identify this particle by the name of tachyon.
Now, If we examine the idea by the special theory of relativity; The fastest speed is of light in the universe. If the original speed of the particle is less than the light, then it will always remain less and if the original speed is equal to light then it will be equal forever. If the object is having original speed more than the speed of light then it will remain more only.
But, no particle can vary their original speed with the speed of light. If it happens, then this will violate the special theory of relativity.
The particles which don’t have mass can only match the speed of light. The photons can only move at the speed of light. According to the special theory of relativity, If any object moves in high speed then it’s mass changes and also experiences the time dilation and length contraction of the distance.
If we see the formula of the relativity of mass, then there will be mentioning the tachyon speed more than the speed of light, which will produce the imaginary result. This proves that the tachyon can never be found in the universe and will remain in the theory only.
