Can you answer it ?

I recently received this question on my site. I openly publish the question on this blog and allow my readers to answers the question to the best of their ability. Post them in comments section. Best answering author has himself/herself featured in a box on the right side of the blog. I have already received one answer from one of my friends. See if you can produce something different. We'll have ratings then !

Here is the question by Solomon Mamo Banteywalu

When I observe the theories written about the possibility of 'time travel' one question comes into my head, it is proved that, if a massive body (doesn't matter how small its mass is) moves with the speed of light its mass becomes infinite, then why photons (light particles) made such a long journey in the universe? Are they acted up on by an infinite force?

PS.: Try to be short and to the point!

Photons have mass while in motion, but when it is at rest its a zero mass object. Which could be the reason for why it took such a long time to travel.

This is science !

When you are speaking to technically illiterate people you must resort to the plausible falsehood instead of the difficult truth.
