TS Corinthic, Captain Richard Thorne RNVR, White Star Line:
Okay - showing my crappy maths here. What I need here is a SIMPLE mathematical formula that'll relate the distance travelled in time to the distance at sea, possibly an exponential curve or close to it. The way I want it to work is that you start off slowly but accelerate. A few months in the first few miles, a few years in the next few, and so forth, say 200 million years in a week, and the beginning of the universe in a month or two (assuming you could keep sailing). I can simply give figures that suit me, but it'd be better if I could give a formula that can be used without too much messing around. Any suggestions?
