Basic Relativistic Space Travel Type 3 Computations

The ship departs from Earth on a round-trip voyage to a destination star at a given distance (D), accelerating at a constant G-factor.

The ship accelerates until it reaches the midpoint of the journey at distance (d = D/2) at time (T), according to an Earth clock or time (t), according to the ship clock, then reverses thrust and decelerates at the same rate until it reaches the destination.
