: NOW lets asume that the we DONT decelerate : distance = 16 m, velocity = 16 m/s, time = 1 sec : distance = 8 m, velocity = 16 m/s, time = 1/2 sec : distance = 4 m, velocity = 16 m/s, time = 1/4 sec : etc... : distance = 0 m, velocity = 16 m/s, time = 0 sec : Touch point would happen in 1 second from the start point, and go through and infinite amount of "points" to get there

That is true, but what about minimum distance at minimum amount of time before collision. Can't you see what Randy ment? There isn't such thing??? Why don't you then just say that this minimum distance doesn't exist because spacetime is continuos? Or maybe it isn't ?
