# Astro Travel Time

vCalc.Astro Travel Time

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:

**Speed**: Choose the speed from the list at which you will be traveling.**Earth to ...**: Choose the place in space to which you're traveling.

**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 warp speed (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.

- Astronomical Distance Calculator provides the distance from the Earth to numerous astronomical bodies (e.g. Sun, Moon, planets, stars, Milky Way's Center and Edge, Andromeda Galaxy)
- Astronomical Distance Travel Time Calculator computes the time to travel to distant parts of space at different velocities.

### Fun Stuff

The Star Trek speeds are based on two formulas. First, Full Impulse power is one fourth (.25) of the speed of light. Second, WARP SPEED velocity is equal to WARP * Milk Way Galaxy and location of the Sun*cubed times the speed of light.

Velocity = w³ • C where w is WARP Speed.

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.
