Is there any possibility for us to surpass the speed of light?

The discovery of Higgs boson indicates that light-speed travel is possible.

Until now we are very far from that. Is it possible for us to travel with the speed of light?

Einstein allowed for particles called tachyons which were created at, and can theoretically exceed, c. Also there is something called Cherenkov Radiation which might travel FTL (faster than light) in certain mediums. Einstein denied the possibility of a mass being accelerated up to c and then exceeding it. Something might exist beyond the Light Barrier, but nothing can ever break it. The jury (Nobel Physics Prize) is still out on Higgs Boson. Sorry, no 670 million-miles-per-hour travel for you Ramu.

    So if you can warp and condense space it takes to reach your destination, you can travel faster than light.
