      Theory suggest this is not possible and that the speed of light is the fastest thing in the universe. If something ever did surpass it, scientists would need to review a lot of scientific theories.

      As far as I know, the only thing that breaks the speed of light is when 2 particles become “quantum entangled”. When one particle gets smacked, the other one feels it. So information travels between the two particles instantaneously (faster than light). So far scientists have quantum entangled particles about 100 miles apart.
