I was just wondering the same thing but quickly got intimidated by the calculus that I imagine would be involved.<br /><br />I am interested in the proper time experienced by the crew of a ship that can sustain 1g acceleration/deceleration for the entire trip.Jan Hošekhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/02135483213100153806noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1784861354684747574.post-5359051520439973572017-02-24T12:52:23.841-08:002017-02-24T12:52:23.841-08:007.3 years, according to my calculations.7.3 years, according to my calculations.Alexhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/06621088380628973769noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1784861354684747574.post-86711320954589444502017-02-24T12:47:15.863-08:002017-02-24T12:47:15.863-08:00Nice.

Btw, it's amazing how many people, including especially newscasters, say that it would take at least 40 years to get to the newly found Trappist 1 planets. They never think in terms of the travelers' time!<br /><br />How long would you say it would take, using your second scenario of maximizing earth like acceleration?3rd Lawrencehttps://www.blogger.com/profile/10066758497186801694noreply@blogger.com
