I don't view traveling faster than the speed of light to be any different than traveling faster than the speed of sound. Scientists use to question traveling faster than the speed of sound too, but it has been achieved and breaking the sound barrier awesome. Also, any massless particle can travel at the speed of light. Light is just something visible, that we can view and are aware of without a lot of theoretical research. The universe can expand a lot faster than light can reach us from burnt out stars. I would compare it to someone running on a treadmill. The person on the treadmill may think they are doing something and running a great distance, but have gone absolutely no where, because they have been running stationary in one place for a really long time.
