I have zero understanding on astrophysics, but hope to have help on determining the plausibility of an element to a story, travelling from Earth to Jupiter in four months, increasing acceleration with an orbit around first the Earth then the Sun,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Orbit Earth to increase acceleration of ship max speed from 20,000 meters per second to 57,716 meters per second

Trip to Sun

Seconds in one 30 days 2,592,000

Earth to Sun 149,600,000,000 meters

the ship must reach 57,716 meters per second to travel this distance

Trip to Jupiter

7,776,000 seconds in 90 days

With an average distance the Sun to Jupiter 778,500,000,000 meters

the ship must reach100,115 meters per second to travel 778,500,000 kilometers

The Question

For a human body to survive, they would be in a gravity compensation chamber, so my question is how many "G"s would the chamber need to accommodate. or am I completely off the boil. :-)

Kind Regards

Steve
