## Main Question or Discussion Point

I'm just wondering:

Say you obtain a spaceship that can travel just short of the speed of light.

If you travel to ao object "one light year" away, would it take you one year to get there from YOUR perspective, or from some stationary person on earth's perspective?

Because I know that the closer you get to the speed of light, the slower time passes for you relative to people at rest

So, basically, I'm wondering if, from your perspective, it takes one year to get there or some shorter time
