Mar 10,  · If a tachyon did exist, it would always move faster than the speed of light. Using the same reasoning as in the case of slower-than-light particles, you can prove that it would take an infinite amount of energy to slow a tachyon down to light speed. Faster Than the Speed of Light refers to a theory that physicist João Magueijo has done extensive work on -- "VSL" (varying speed of light), which proposes that the speed of light, the famous "c" in Einstein's E=mc², is in fact not a constant.

The special theory of relativity implies that only particles with zero rest mass may travel at the speed of light. Tachyons, particles whose speed exceeds that of light, have been hypothesized, but their existence would violate.
