3. A spaceship sets off from earth, beginning at rest. It accelerates at a rate of 0.1c/year until it
reaches a speed of 0.5c (all relative to its initial rest frame). Once it reaches a speed of 0.5c
it begins to decelerate at 0.1c/year until it is at rest. How much time has passed on a clock
on board the spaceship?
