Basic Relativistic Space Travel Type 2 Computations The ship departs from Earth on a one-way voyage, accelerating outward at a constant G-factor. The ship accelerates until it reaches the breakpoint distance (D), the point where its fuel runs out and all thrust and acceleration stops.   It thencoasts forever outward into infinity at a constant speed equal to its final terminal speed (β = v/c). Distance In Light Years Acceleration G-Factor G > 0 ``` BASIC RELATIVISTIC SPACE TRAVEL TYPE 2 STATISTICS Distance To Breakpoint In Light Years D = 1 Acceleration G-Factor Experienced On Ship (Earth = 1.0) G = 1 Acceleration Potential For Given G-Factor α = 1.03229527555359 ============================================= TRIP COMPUTATIONS Final Relativistic Speed At Breakpoint β = 0.87056440674997 = v/c ========================== TRAVEL TIMES TO BREAKPOINT Travel Time To Breakpoint According To Home Clock T = 1.71389327530759 yr = 625.9995188061 d = 89wk 2d 23h 59m 18s Travel Time To Breakpoint According To Ship Clock t = 1.2936279673803 yr = 472.49761508565 d = 67wk 3d 11h 56m 34s Absolute Travel Time Difference Time Diff = 0.42026530792729 yr = 153.50190372044 d = 21wk 6d 12h 02m 44s ```
