Ok suppose we are able to make and control a light photon bubble(stolen from star trek) and were able to manipulate that bubble to the speed of light. The interior of the bubble would not be affected by the mass equation in that scenario
Science gets colder than absolute zero
This unusual advance could lead to new engines that could technically be more than 100 percent efficient, and shed light on mysteries such as dark energy, the mysterious substance that is apparently pulling our universe apart.
I use photons as a plausible solution. Considering that they are moving at the speed of light, collecting them and surrounding a vehicle with a bubble of photons seems to me to be a means of avoiding the mass part of the einstein equation. I didn't say this would be easy. We are already slowing light down with gravitational fields and harnessing nuclear fusion for a few milliseconds
Now as my link shows we now have a plausible means of running engines at greater than 100% efficiency, which as I recall was a stopping point for anything with mass to approach the speed of light.

We should not forget the important fact that everything we see and observe in the Universe is matter which is represented by its inherited mass.

This would not be a closed system and hence the excess efficiency must emanate from energy applied outside of the system in question. Just as an air conditioner can easily be 300 % efficient by pumping energy into and out of the environment.
