When I asked my previous question about love on multi generation ship, I left blank the where are the people going. Simply because I do not know.
Now I am in search of software which would ease some calculations.
Example: Say the ship is travelling to a system which is 35 light years away. The basic math tells me, that if I want to be here in 600 years, I have to travel 0.06c on average for the whole time (hopefully I did not mess even the basics :) )
But the thing is, such ship will probably spend some time accelerating and then braking.
Being lazy person, I am in search of software which would allow me to enter these variables and calculate time to travel:
- How far (in lightyears) am I travelling
- What is the fastest speed I want to achieve during travel (fraction of light speed)
- How heavy the ship is
- How long do I want to accelerate and brake
Is there such software I could use?
P.S.: As of the engines and/or rockets pushing the ship to movement, I feel like hand-waving this and make them from unobtainium.
