One of the characters mentions that the simulation of gravity is caused by the continuous acceleration of the ship. If the ship accelerated at normal gravity on earth, it would reach the speed of light in 0.97 years. If it increased velocity at earth-gravity for 9 years (half the 18-year journey), it would be traveling over 9 times the speed of light. To achieve light-speed after 9 years, simulated gravity would only be about 1/10 that of earth. See more »
