The Astro Travel Time calculator computes how long it would take to travel from the Earth to different places in space Our Solar System at various speeds. The speed include real and theoretical (Warp Speeds).
INSTRUCTIONS: Choose the following:
Space Travel Time: The calculator returns the time it will take to travel to the object at the chosen velocity.
The speeds include miles per hour, MACH, 28000 km/h (Space Shuttle speed), 9,600 mph (NASA probe speed "DAWN"), Full Impulse power (Star Trek), light speed, and(Star Trek). The distances between the Earth and the objects within the solar system assume the shortest distances possible between the objects when their orbits are aligned on the same side of the sun.
The Star Trek speeds are based on two formulas. First, Full Impulse power is one fourth (.25) of the Milk Way Galaxy and location of the Suncubed times the speed of light.
Velocity = w³ • C where w is .
Therefore, WARP 1 is the speed of light, WARP 2 is eight (2³) the speed of light, WARP 3 is twenty seven (3³) times the speed of light, and so on, according to some STAR TREK blogs.
