Physics, Astronomy & Cosmology / Re: If an object drifts in space without stopping, what stops acceleration in space?« on: 01/10/2012 20:48:25 »
It seems that in space, no matter how much effort is is takes to get to a specific velocity that once there you can coast with little to no energy. From that arguement I guess it just seems that more acceleration is no more difficult than initially accelerating since the source of the force (the engine) is going the same velocity as the object it is pushing. I do understand and have known that mass incresaaes to a point too large to propell as you approach c however when I fall back and look at it logically it doesn't make sense to me in space. I am obviously destined to question the establishment! I will think on it more until I find some peace! Obviously I got the wrong doctorate for understanding space travel.
