## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi, this is my first post on here. Let's say I departure from earth in a spaceship and reach a speed very close to c, as I go faster time would run slower and I would feel as if I was going faster and faster with no speed limit, even though I'm not going faster than c. Because my time is distorted, space would shrink making it possible for me to reach another galaxy in my lifetime. By the time I got to andromeda, life in earth would have disappeared 2.537 million years ago. But for me it would have only been a couple of years, days or seconds, depending on how close I got to c.

I've been intrigued by relativity lately and I'm trying to understand it before I get to the math. Am I right thinking what a wrote? If not, what's wrong and what would be the correct way to put it.

I would also like to know how hard is the math behind relativity, I'm a 3rd year engineering student.

PS: English is my second language, sorry if I wrote something wrong.

Thanks!
