# What If You Could Travel at the Speed of Light

Imagine being able to travel at the speed of light, really short commute, huh? Think of this you travel 186,000 miles in just one second. It seems like an awful waste of endless opportunities to make why not go to space, but first things first, let’s figure out how Fast the speed of light is a spoiler. It’s swift. It’s the speed at which light travels in a perfect vacuum, and it’s 671 million miles per hour. It takes sunlight, on average, eight minutes and 17 seconds to go all the way from the Sun to Earth. Why don’t we humans explore space at the speed of life?

Well, in short, the laws of physics make it impossible. Let’s ignore this insignificant detail for now and a man. The engine we can move at the speed of light. The Moon is almost 239,000 miles away from our planet. This distance is the same as 30 Earth’s Place side by side. If you were traveling to our planet’s natural satellite at the speed of light, it would take you just a bit more than one second to reach your destination for a comparison. If you decided to drive to the mode without breaking speed limits at about 65 miles per hour, it would take you almost. Three thousand seven hundred hours, which is 154 days or more than five months Venus is the closest planet to Earth on average the distance between the morning star in our world is 25 million miles that’s 1,000 times as long as the distance around her still while traveling at the speed of light you’d need just two minutes before you landed your spacecraft on Venus. It might be just enough time to munch on a big bird. Burrito, on the other hand, if Venus were on the other side of the sun, it would take you 15 minutes to reach it, and that time is enough to have a proper meal. If you had to use a car, the trip to Venus would take you almost 400,000 hours, which is about forty-four and a half years.

The smallest ever observed distance between Earth and Mars is 35 million miles. The average length is around 140 million miles, and the most significant range reaches 250 million miles, which is 1,000 times the distance from Earth to the Moon. Anyway, let’s imagine it’s your lucky day and you have to travel the smallest distance. Then you need a bit more than three minutes to step on the reddish Martian Sands if you travel to the red planet by car. At a speed of 65 miles per hour. Well, you’re going to want to bring a big lunch.

You would spend five hundred forty thousand hours, which is more than 62 years in your vehicle, better change your oil. At the same time, you can make the average distance between Mercury and Earth is 48 million miles, which is 10,000 times as long as the distance between Los Angeles and New York traveling at the speed of light. It’s been almost four and a half minutes to reach your destination. You can wash to Uh movie trailers during this time by car. Oh boy. You would need 740,000 hours or more than 85 years to make a one-way trip. It’s time to travel to our one and only son, which is almost ninety-three million miles away from Earth. But when you travel at the speed of light, this distance doesn’t seem so huge anymore. It would take you just a bit more than eight minutes to get to the sun’s surface. Wow, it’s hot, eight minutes. That’s almost enough to watch a To video Traveling by car is another story you would be stuck in it for about a million and a half hours. It makes 165 years in space way too long. You visited all the nearest sites, and it’s time for longer trips. How about traveling to Jupiter, the distance between this planet and Earth varies with the smallest being 365 million miles and the greatest more than 600 million miles.

Let’s assume you don’t have to travel that far even; You need about 32 minutes. To reach the giant planet in the solar system, that time is enough to have an app. But if you went by car, you would spend several lifetimes to cover the distance, which is 150,000 times as long as the Mississippi River to be precise. It would take you almost 650 years. Wow, would you better is by no means the furthest you can go Saturn is about 750 Million Miles Away From Earth at his closest that’s 3,000 distances from our planet. To the Moon and still, if you traveled at the speed of light, you wouldn’t even have enough time to watch your favorite movie the entire Journey would take a bit more than an hour by car. Well, you would spend more than 1,300 years to read Saturn. That’s what I call a long-haul flight better. I hope they have a meal service and some entertainment. And now, let’s use that speed of light to the fullest and go to Uranus get your spaceship thoroughly checked because you’ll have to travel 1.6 billion miles. That’s the closest Uranus has ever been to Earth. Thanks to your lightning-fast speed, the trip wouldn’t take too much time just a bit more than two hours by car. Hmm. You need almost 3,000 years to reach your earnest. It’s 150,000 times. As long as the Apollo 11 Mission. Be careful at one point you get bored with your ability to move at the speed of light. You can even travel to the outskirts of the solar system toward the Oort cloud rumor. Has it the Oort cloud might contain more than a trillion. That’s 1 million comments.

You need three years to reach that far away place. That’s enough to see all the movies on your to-watch list read at least a hundred books or write your one. Now don’t even consider driving to the Oort cloud. It would take you millions of years to reach your destination. The destination you can also visit the closest to Earthstar other than the sun Proxima Centauri is more than 24 trillion miles away from our planet as 24 with 12 zeros. No worries, I get confused too. But if you decide to set off on such a journey be ready to spend four years to get there, a road trip to Proxima Centauri would take 44 million years your trips get longer and longer you’re about to visit the center of our home Milky Way galaxy.

The thing is enormously more than 100,000 light-years in diameter and another 1,000 light-years thick by the way. Remember one light-year is the distance light travels in a year and it’s about six trillion miles plus the Milky Way galaxy is home to about 400 billion stars and even more planets to get through the center of the Milky Way, you would have to travel a distance of 25,000 light-years, even at the speed of light. It would still take you to guess what twenty-five Thousand Years by car. It would take a bit longer to think of a number and still too small. Let’s say you’re getting ambitious. Why not visit the closest to Earth large spiral galaxy, that’ll be the Andromeda galaxy in this case. You need to pack as many supplies and entertainments as possible because the trip would take two and a half million years. Well, I think long before this point just bail and visit Niagara Falls.
