How Far Would You Go?


Melodee's Home Page

I can't seem to leave some news stories alone...

500 Miles

OK, so it's farther than 500 miles. I just couldn't resist the musical note. No pun intended.

Anyway...

Most people can't begin to comprehend the distances we're talking about here. There are just too many zeros in 10,800,000,000 miles. Try these instead...

17,380,915,000 Kilometers

57976.493 Light Seconds

966.27488 Light Minutes

0.0018371642 Light Years

That last one is telling...

It is about 4 light years to the closest star. Voyager 1 has been traveling for 33 years.

At this rate, it will take Voyager 1 another 2,177 years to reach the nearest star.

Keep Loving!
