The universe on the spaceship, car and foot
• In the universe on the spaceship, car and foot
The highest speed in the universe - it is the speed of light - about 1 billion km / h, for 1 year light overcomes the distance 9,760,800,000 000 km.
spacecraft speed record - 240 000 km / h - was established by the German-American solar probe "Helios-B", launched January 15, 1976 Average vehicle speed - 100 km / h.
person walking fast speed - 8 km per hour. To understand what distance separates us from cosmic objects by sending them these three ways.
The first object in space - of course, the Moon
Just one hour will take our journey on the probe "Helios-B" By car journey will last for 160 days, almost six months and 5 years, we will go on foot.
Next stop - Mars
The minimum distance from Mars to Earth is 56 Mill. Km, a distance is reached again in 17 years. On a space probe mission would take only 9 days, but on the car for that would take nearly 63 years of continuous driving. But the walk to go Mars 799 years! By the time of arrival on Mars dozens of generational change on Earth.
Next, we are waiting for the sun - our star
Probe to fly, need for 26 days, almost a month flight. The car should go 173 long years to reach our star. Brisk walk we will get to the sun 2168 years. Perhaps by that time as we go, mankind on earth would cease to exist.
And here is the last planet in our solar system - Pluto
Distance has a serious - 5, 6 billion kilometers, 3 years of flight separate us from him.. 6392 Car of the Year, with its speed, will get to the last planet. A person needs nearly 90,000 years.
The nearest star, the Sun. neighbor - Proxima Centauri
She left in the picture flickers in red, is located at a distance of 4 light-years from Earth or 39 043 200 000 000 km. The probe will need 18,750 years of flight, to get to it.
neighbor of our galaxy - the Andromeda Galaxy
Distance to her incredible 2, 5 million light years away! Or 97 608 000 000 000 000 000 km - it's hard to imagine this number? And even more so - its name.
The probe will need 46 billion years to reach her, but it's more than there is a known universe, by the time on the site of the Andromeda galaxy will be completely new, and possibly more galaxies will be changed by that time.
