This is off the beaten track for this group, so I
apologize beforehand for this posting. But, since
you guys can calculate orbital elements from a simple
visual observation this math ought to be easy enough
for you.

I'm wondering, since Shannon Lucid spent 6 months or
so traveling at 5 miles per second, how much did time
slow down for her as compared to her earthbound neighbors?

I'm not asking this from a "teacher" point of view where
I already know the answer. I'm truely curious.

Many regards,
