e=mc2 tells us that, as an object gains velocity it becomes more "massive" (not larger but carries more mass) when approaching near light speeds, you could hit a planet, and it should be like driving through a mm thick wall of water
What do you mean by "Earth's position + 10000 km"? Do you mean 10000 km further from the sun than Earth, or do you mean on the same orbit around the sun and 10000 km ahead of Earth? Anyway, +-10000 km shouldn't matter much - if the spacecraft has the same velocity as Earth and you don't add an escape velocity, it should stay roughly on the same orbit. I ...
