About the velocity of light

  1. Feb 14, 2006 #1
    Dear All,

    Velocity of light is always constant (except for they that are studiyng exceptions to this norma), but I'm doing a mental experiment that has problems.

    To go to one star, I must first accelerate me (like i was a particle) and then go to the constant velocity "c". Then, when I arrive, i must to decelerate to 0. This is in a straigh line.

    The question is much dificult if I try to develope the same trip, but not in straigh line. Has anybody information about this (in ausence of any influence)?

    best reggards.
