Space F(l)ight

Level pending

A Tayland spacecraft was just returning from space when it saw an Elementia spacecraft some distance away. Being mortal enemies, the two spacecrafts started moving toward each other. The Tayland spacecraft was moving at 20 km per second and the Elementia one at half that amount. When they were 60000 km away, the Tayland spacecraft fired a laser bolt at the Elementia one. This is a special laser bolt which can travel at 1234 km per second. Fortunately, the Elementia spacecraft had it's reflectors on and the bolt flew back to the Tayland spacecraft. In the nick of time, the Tayland pilot pulled out her pocket mirror and sent the bolt flying back. The bolt kept bouncing back and forth until the two spacecrafts, so engaged in the bolt, crashed into each other. How far had the bolt travelled? Give your answer in km.
