Good point.... You'll have to de-cellerate too when you get there, so I suppose you don't want to be doing 18 x C when your going to Mars...Not unless you have pretty good breaks and a means to stop you getting pasted into your windshield by the G's...

Rofl, this is on a different scale than the wheel. I understand what you mean... But this has the possibly of advancing the human race beyond lifetimes that we prior to this event (if it pans out) may never have seen. This has the possibility of being THE thing that extends the human race far into the future, we could now actually search out other planets and places to go in the event of a world disaster.
HUGE news! The worlds long turn future relies on discovery like this. (At least this is my opinion.)
