Is this possible?

Gradually expose a pilot to more and more increasing "G's" until he can withstand travelling at the speed of light?


Anonymous- what if you had something reversing the G Force subtracting the G's by making him pull Negative G's at the same time?

    First, nothing with mass can travel at the speed of light. 

    Second, there is no danger traveling at any constant speed less than the speed of light. You can't feel your movement at all. It is acceleration that causes a pilot problems. 

    Third, a human can only withstand about 8 g's for a fraction of a second. Less g's for a bit longer time. Any more g's of acceleration will crush a person and kill him.

    People just don't get it.  There is no such thing as travelling at the speed of light.  Speeds are not absolute.  They are only relative.  And no matter how much you accelerate the speed of light remains at "c" ( relative to you).  That is the basis of Einstein's special relativity.

    1. G force has zero to do with speed

    2. speed of light cannot be reached, impossible

    3. current technology can only achieve a small fraction of the speed of light. A very small fraction.

    just study some basic physics ....

    Not possible. It's not like his body can endlessly adapt until it can take it. He will die at a certain level, whether he's been close hundreds of times or never before.
