the distance traveled by wind or waves across open water.

### How far into space has a space probe traveled?

The space probe furthest from the Earth is Voyager 1. It is at a distance of 109.366 AU from Earth. 1 AU is the distance between the Earth and the Sun. Hence, it is around 110 times the distance between the earth and the Sun and around 10 times further than Pluto is from Earth.

### What is the farthest you have traveled into space?

I personally have never been farther than about 7.5 miles from earth's surface. Apollo astronauts have traveled as far as lunar orbit, around the far side of the moon, roughly 238,000 miles from earth. That's about 1/2% of the distance to Mars when Mars and earth are as close together as they can ever be, and about 1/4% of the distance to the sun.

### How many kilometers can a human travel into space?

### What is the farthest mankind has travelled into the universe?

Human beings have traveled about 240,000 miles from the earth. That's the distance to the moon and around it in orbit.

### Why is the equator the longest line of latitude?

The equator is located at 0 degrees latitude, which means it is located at the circunference of Earth. Earth is shaped like a sphere, and the circumference of a sphere is the longest distance around any part of the sphere. Therefore, this makes the equator the longest line of latitude.

### What is the longest distance from one place to another?

The longest possible distance from one place to another on the surface of the earth is half of the earth's circumference. (If it were any further, you could go around the other way, which would be shorter.) Since the earth bulges slightly around the equator, the equator has the greatest circumference of any circle on the earth. The equatorial diameter is 7,926 miles (12,756 km) so the circumference at the equator is (7,926 x pi)… Read More

### Who was the first country to travel in outer space?

The first nation to launch one of its citizens into earth orbit aboard a rocket-powered vehicle was the USSR. The altitude of his brief orbital sojourn could hardly be described as "outer space". The only humans to have traveled beyond low-earth-orbit so far were the Apollo astronauts who traveled to the moon ... about 1/4 million miles from earth, or roughly 1/4 of 1 percent of the distance to the sun. Though that too was… Read More

### What happens to the force of gravity on a rocket as the rocket leaves earth and moves into space?

The farther the rocket withdraws from the center of the Earth, the smaller the mutual forces of gravity between the rocket and the Earth become.

Given the following approximate radii for Earth and mars orbits: Earth = 149,598,261 km Mars = 227,939,150 km The shortest distance between the two is the difference between the two, which yields 4minutes 21seconds for radio to go that distance. The longest distance between the two is the sum, which yields 21minutes.

### How many AU have you traveled if you travel 6 months?

Relative to the sun, the the earth and everything on it is 2 astronomical units away from the location it was 6 months ago. But since it didn't travel in a straight line, the actual distance traveled is somewhat greater.

### How do rockets escape from earths gravitational pull?

when the rockets push they create a certain amount of thrust which is need to get the rocket off the ground. As the rocket gets higher the air friction becomes less so the rocket travels faster , most of the force is needed to get away from Earth. To completely escape the earth's gravitational pull the crew must reach a distance of at least 400 km away, that is why the iss (international space station)… Read More

### Rocket A travels with speed 0.800c relative to the earth Rocket B passes rocket A with speed 0.500c relative to rocket A Determine the speed of rocket B relative to the earth Assume that the earth?

### What are the landforms like on Pluto?

The topography of Pluto is a complete mystery to astronomers as its extreme distance from Earth makes it impossible to view with telescopes, nor have any probes traveled there as of yet.

### How fast does the earth travle around the sun?

Let's calculate that. First of all we know that in general, the time it takes to travel a distance is equal to the length of that distance, divided by the speed at which you travel that distance. If we reverse that, we get that the speed is equal to the distance traveled over the time taken. We also know that the time it takes for the Earth to go once around the Sun is 1… Read More

### When a body is thrown vertically to reach a height h before returning to Earth what is the distance traveled and the displacement?

The distance travelled is 2h (it went up 'h' and came down 'h', having travelled 'h' distance twice), and the displacement is 0 (assuming it landed where it took off from).

### What is the average distance for Pluto to travel around the sun?

Roughly 654,857,268.3 mph According to these calculations it would be roughly 10,593.24 mph, not 654,857,268.3 mph.

### What is the distance traveled by the earth around the sun?

At an average orbital speed of 107,200 km per hour, the earth would travel the distance of 107,200 x 24 x 365.25 in one year. This is equal to around 940 million km. You could also work it out by using the radius of 150 million km (earth to sun average distance) squaring this and multiplying by Pi to give an approximate circumference which would be the orbit length.

### How long would it take to get to Venus from earth traveling 20000 mph?

It is hard to tell. The distance to Venus varies greatly according to whether Earth and Venus are on the same or opposite sides of the Sun. Just as important, space craft never ever travel in a straight line from the Earth to its destination. What they do is use an intermediate object like the moon, and use its gravity to gain acceleration from a slingshot action.

### The distance travel by Earth arounrd the Sun in an year?

The earth's path around the sun is not a perfect circle. But it's close, and in order to answer this question, we'll assume that it is. The earth's average distance from the sun ... the radius of the "circle" ... is 93 million miles. The distance traveled by earth around the sun in a year ... the circumference of the circle ... is (2 pi) times (radius) = 584.3 million miles (rounded)

The length of time it takes for an orbit is equal to 164.79 Earth years. The distance traveled in its orbit can be computed from the orbital speed, and is approximately 28.24 billion kilometers. The average orbital radius (distance from the Sun) is 4.5 billion kilometers.

### How does a rocket stay in orbit or continue into outer space?

The gravitational pull of Earth is the main factor that a rocket must overcome. A rocket must reach a certain velocity or speed and direction to orbit or escape the Earth. For a rocket to orbit the Earth, it must have enough thrust to reach orbital velocity. Orbital velocity is the speed and direction a rocket must travel in order to orbit a planet or a moon. The lowest possible speed a rocket my go… Read More

### How long it would take you to reach the moon if you traveled at a speed of 1000 kilometers per hour?

The distance from the Earth to the moon is about 384,000 Kilometers so it would be about 384 hours or 16 days.

### Which requires more fuel a rocket goin to the moon or a rocket comin from the moon?

Due to the higher gravity amount, a rocket will be pulled back when leaving earth, and pulled forward when going to earth.

### Have any astronauts traveled to Pluto?

No. In fact, no astronaut has ever traveled beyond the orbit of the Earth.

### Why do you multiply 2 by the radius of the moon and pi to get the distance the moon travels in one revolution of the earth?

From geometry it is known that the circumference of a circle is 2*pi*r - where r is the radius. Assuming the orbit of the moon is a circle, then the distance traveled in one orbit is the circumference of the circle.

### What is the distance traveled by light in 1 minute called?

In vacuum, the distance would be roughly 11.2 million miles (rounded). It's never used as a unit of measure, so it doesn't have any particular name, and would be called simply "one light-minute". The distance from Earth to the Sun is about 81/3 of them.

### How does newtons third law explain how a rocket accelerates?

If a rocket pushes the burning gases towards the Earth, then - according to Newton's Third Law - those same gases push the rocket away from Earth.

### Based on the speed of the Sun how fast you are going?

With the orbital path of the earth around the sun at approximately 93 million miles every 365.25 days in our calendar, the earth is moving @ an estimated 18.5 miles per second (30 kilometers per second roughly). To get the speed of an object, you have to divide distance traveled over the elapsed time it took to get to that distance.

### How long does it take light from a star 4 light years away to reach the earth?

1 light year is the distance traveled by light in a full year. So 4 light years is the distance that light travels in 4 years. If something is 4 light years away from the earth, the light will take 4 years to reach us.
