Here's an excerpt from the blog of a guy who calls himself "Spaceman" in his podcasts. His real name is Paul Sutter, and he appears to be a legitimate astrophysicist. He buys into the "spacetime" farce hook, line, and sinker:
This means that you can reach the center of the Milky Way galaxy in only a couple dozen years. Yes, you! No, I'm not joking around! You just need to provide a nice constant acceleration — say 1g, the same acceleration you feel from the Earth’s gravity. You'll never crack the speed of light, but you'll inch ever closer to it. And the faster you go, the slower time passes for you. Everyone stuck on Earth will be counting the millennia [but] you'll get there in only a lifetime. Just don't bother coming back, because…well, everyone you know and love will be long dead.
If you could constantly accelerate at the rate of 1g you would theoretically be travelling at the speed of light in about 1 year. Could you then just keep accelerating at that rate without ever "cracking the speed of light?"
Well, let's see here.....
From us, the Center of the Milky Way is about 26,000 light years away. So at the speed of light, it would take 26,000 years to get there, right? But this guy says you can get there in 20 years, without exceeding the speed of light. How does that work?
Oh, wait, I forgot. 50 Billion light years will only be 1/10th of one inch if you're travelling fast enough, eh? Of course you never need to reach the speed of light. Hell, I could travel 1/10th of an inch in a split second, even without a rocket.
Hey, Jack, there...hold up a minute. I got something for you that you're gunna love. Magic beans!! Just give me that cow and you can have them. Whaddaya say, homeboy!?
Remember now, he's not joking around!!
Like he says, it's all a simple matter of trading space for time, can't ya see? Kinda like trading magic beans for cows, know what I'm sayin?
