How fast can a man-made object travel through space without negative consequences?
Posted on 2013-12-18
The Milky Way is traveling through space at approximately 343 mi/sec, relative to the cosmic background at rest. What would happen to a man-made object traveling at 18,600 mi/sec through the Milky Way?
Also at 1G acceleration, how long would it take for an object to reach that speed?
