I'm not that experienced in space, but am currently hitching a ride to Arkadia to do a little crafting. While talking to my pilot, he mentioned that rebooting cost us 2au. On further investigation, I note that when marking Arkadia as a waypoint, it counts down in au (which I can only assume refers to astronomical units) as we near our target. Now, I have always understood an astronomical unit to be the distance between Earth and its star, the Sun, which can be rounded to about 150,000,000 km. Please check my maths, because I'm actually hoping I've made a mistake somewhere. Watching the au counter tick down as we approach our destination, I note that in the VTOL we appear to be chewing through about 0.01 au approximately every 1.5 seconds, or 1,500,000 km every 1.5 seconds. That equates to about 60,000,000 km a minute or 3,600,000,000 km per hour. Light travels at roughly 1,080,000,000 km per hour as far as I know, which leads me to believe that I am currently travelling at approximately 3 1/3 TIMES the speed of light. In a VTOL! My pilot tells me that a quad travels twice as fast, so that would be about 6 2/3 TIMES the speed of light. Can someone tell me why: a) a mothership needs a warp drive? b) I can converse with my pilot without turning inside out? c) our VTOL is not creating a black hole? d) time is not doing strange things? e) I have gone cross-eyed?
