Best Answer

Using current rocket technology it would take around 5 years to get to Europa in a flyby maneuver, or around 10 years to get there and enter orbit around Europa. Advanced nuclear rockets could theoretically cut the trip down to 3 years or less.

Is there a way to determine how long it would take to get to Europa from Earth?

Yes, but you would need to know the velocity of the object travelling there and also the distance between the earth and Europa at the point of time you left, while calculating the orbital distance difference of Jupiter and Europa whilst travelling. A rough estimate (ignoring those variables) would be the distance from the sun to Jupiter is 5.2au (with the distance of Europa from Jupiter being 0.004au, so we'll ignore it), so the distance from Earth to Europa is 4.2au at minimum distance. (1au = ~150,000,000km) Because the speed is unknown at present, we'll say the speed the object (space shuttle) is travelling at is 30,000kph, that would make the time 875 days to travel there at constant speed. Walking there would take 14,383 years.

How long does it take Europa to orbit the sun?

Europa is a moon of Jupiter, so it orbits the Sun (on average) in the same period of time as the planet, which is about 4332.6 Earth days or 11.86 Earth years. Europa makes one orbit of Jupiter about every 3.55 Earth days.

How long does it take the earth to travel once around the world?

Well the earth cannot travel around the world being as they are the same thing. However, if you meant how long does it take the earth to travel around the sun then the answer would be about 365.25 days.


How long would it take to travel to Europa if you traveled at the speed of light?

To the Moon Europa, you mean? Europa is a Moon of Jupiter; Jupiter is at a distance of about 40 minutes, on average. The distance from Earth varies, both because of the excentricity of Jupiter's orbit, and (mainly) because of the fact that the Earth goes on its orbit around the Sun.To the Moon Europa, you mean?
