W ith an assumed distance of s = 100 Millions of kilometres
( = 1 * 1011 m ) one can calculate the half-time th of the journey with a classical Newton
approach to the problem:
(used simplification : linear movement with constant acceleration and constant mass )

s
- = 1/2 * g * th  | *2
2

so th  =  100963,76 seconds = 28,05 hours and t = 2*th = 56,1 hours !

The relativistic mass incrementation and the light-speed frontier will not have to be considered in this equation (respectively flight concept) due to a maximum velocity of  vmax = g*th =  990454,49 m/s = 0,003 * c
