Contemporary physics states that no object in the universe can travel faster than the speed of light. So if an object were to be traveling close to the speed and was given a great push in the direction was traveling, the object is not able travel much faster. Where does the excess energy go? It gets converted to mass. However, this effect is only temporary.
