Re: 10,000ths of a radian per second

At the speed of light it takes you no time at all to get anywhere. If you can sustain 1g (which you can't, anywhere near, but let's pretend we have Bussard ramjet or something: you need a jet not a rocket to get the specific impulse you would need) then you can get to Proxima Centauri in 3.6 years, to centre of galaxy in 20 years, to Andromeda in 28 years, stopping there when you arrive. All times as experienced by person in rocket: times for person watching rocket somewhat longer (somewhat...).
