And taking relativistic effects and time dilation into account you could circumnavigate
the observable universe in about 30 years of 1 g acceleration. I should say that I'm talking
about the observable unnerves as it is now, not after its expanded for 90 billion years or so
when you finish. I suppose I should also say that your rocket would need about as much
energy as there is in the observable universe to reach this speed, but that's a minor point.
