There once was a lady named bright,
Who could travel much faster than light.
She set out one day, in a relative way,
And returned on the previous night.

One of the things that turns up with relativity is that when a physical object goes faster than light one of the things it would experience would be a reversal of time line.
However it is a nonsense sort of prediction - because other aspects of the Lawrence - Fitzgerald transformations preclude such a velocity. There is a distortion of the space-time that seems to be self limiting as far as we understand right now.
To understand better you need to do some reading on relativity.
