Space Travel

  1. Suppose I have a space ship that can accelerate to c in one month of acceleration/deceleration of month and I want to travel to Andromeda. From my frame of reference wouldn't my total travel time be two months?

  3. No material object can accelerate to c, it can only get close to c.

    Assuming this means "very, very close to c": 1 month in which system? For the ship: then sure. For earth? Then the ship will experience even less time.
