Countdown Continues: How long would it take us to get to the sun from here?

Did you know it would take approximately 64,597 days or about 177 years to travel from the earth to the sun at a speed of 60 mph! For those of you who aren’t so into trivia, we’ve got something fun for you today too. Check this out: https://spaceplace.nasa.gov/sun-paper/en/

Oh, and in case you were wondering, traveling at our current speed it will only take three days to get to the solar eclipse. Hahaha! Oh come on! You knew it was coming! They don’t call it a “countdown” for nothing! J
