Or a fantastic new means of propulsion (that doesn't involve lots of mass to weigh the rocket down at launch) so you can accelerate the rocket at 9.8M/s^2 for half the distance and flip it around and decelerate it at the same rate for the other half. (And back again).

Back of the envelope: the rocket will hit somewhere in the region of 730,000M/s by the mid-point. Best be careful not to bump into anything.
