Also, if you were in front of it, as it approached, you wouldn't see it coming and you wouldn't last very long.
Finally, if your two speeding objects were travelling parallel to each other, would they ever converge? If they have mass, infinite or otherwise, then they would presumably have gravity and eventually either collide in a star nursery or orbit each other (?).
Correct re gravity and mass. The lower 'projectile' was crushed. It all happened in a flash.
I just googled star nursery. It's in Chiltern. I hope they're aware of the theoretical risks. Perhaps a name change would be advisable.
