What happens if we move at speed of light?

What'll happen if body start moving with speed of light ?

We cannot move at the speed of light. At least that's what we know 'for sure' based on modern physics.

According to Einstein, if we move with the speed of light then the relative speed of light with the observer (moving person) will be same as 3 x 10^8 m/s. so nothing is constant only speed of light is constant. even time is not constant.

Bodies do travel at speed of light and those bodies are photons,
so unless you are talking about a body with finite mass, your question is answered.
For body with finite mass:
Theoretically relativistic mass will become infinite, other than that, I guess it would either become a blackhole, or burn itself away (using up all its mass, converting into energy ).
Guess we'll not know the correct answer anytime soon 😛
