Kepler 22b time to get there

Tags: MEGATAGS
Hi! There was this information on Frontpage
that told about this 600
lightyears away from us.
There I read a ocmment, that asked how
long it would take to get there.
So I thought "yeah how long would it take? 1
Let' s do the math:
I' m from germany so I' ll do it in kilometres
per hour (the result will be the same, the
steps are just a little different}
So first things first: l lightyear is
about 9 460 800 aoo 000 kilometres
9 460 800 aoo aoo x 600 =
kilometres
Thats the distance.
Now the speed: The fastest NASA rocket can
reach a speed of times sonic speed.
That makes , 8 x = kilometres per
hour.
Now the funny thing:
divided throught 12348
equals -> 459"
Now the proof:
So we had km
Then we had km/ h
We do km/ km/ h ( have km/ km so we can put
this out)
What leaves: h
Proof, that we have the result in h.

Haven't you seen Pandorum?

that was my first thought when read 600 light years.

except without doing all the math. i settled for a ballpark estimate of "Really ******* long time"

Your fastest rocket speed is significantly wrong, just saying.

The speed that spacecraft have to travel just to orbit the Earth is about 25,000 km/h in low Earth orbit.

We also have spacecraft that can travel significantly faster than that.

But, even with our actual fastest rockets, it would still be an obscenely long time, haha

In other words, it's damn near impossible to get there.

I smell major maths fail here:
The fastest rocket IN ATMOSPHERE is 10 times the speed of sound
The fastest moving spacecraft is New Horizons, witch is traveling at 55.10 times the speed of sound
Orbital speed is around 28 times the speed of sound.

Redo the maths.

Okay I re-did some calculations using  24,790 mph because thats the fastest manned spacecraft speed:  
1 light year =  5,898,625,370,938 miles   
 5,898,625,370,938/24,790   
= 237,943,742 hours or  
9,914,322 days  
319,816 months  
26651 years  
er....

but without the forces of gravity acting upon us we wouldnt age the same over those years

dude without gravity u'd age faster

It would take 16,200 years.

Or if we're travelling at the speed of light, 600 DERP.

No.. Time is an entity, it doesn't "Exist" per say, you can't speed it up or slow it down, it just..Is.

ermmmmmmm how did they find this planet? :P even with a scope it take 600 years for the researchers to see this planet..

*600 not 6000, my bad

If there's people in there or any other creature , what would they do if they knew we humans are figuring out ways to get there xD

I'm not trolling but i would like to know how they discovered this planet when it is 600 light years away?
User avatar #24 to #22 - collegedood (12/07/2011) [-]
technically speaking the planet we are looking at is 600 light years old (52 million years old) it has taken the light from that planet that long to reach our planet and we are able to focus on it using high powered and sensitive telescopes
