A ship leaves Earth orbit under an acelleration of one gravity, about 9.8 meters per second per second. How long will it take the ship to reach the speed of light as seen from Earth? Assume the speed of light is 3 x 10^8 meters per second.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I calculate about one year. Can this be correct?
