Basic Relativistic Space Travel Type 1 Computations

The spacecraft is simply coasting along a straight path at a constant relativistic speed (β = v/c) during time interval (T), according to a home-based clock or time interval (t) according to the ship clock. In either case, the same distance is spanned during the time interval.

Since the relativistic speed (β) is constant, there is no experience of acceleration on the ship (G=0).
