Fact of the Day: Sun Car

While the sun is "close" to the Earth on an astronomical scale, it is still many millions of miles away from the Earth. If someone was able to drive a car to the Sun, if you were able to constantly keep a speed of 100 mph (160 kph) it you would take you over a hundred years to reach it.

  7. Gorgeous photo! My Grandmother MacBeath had a set of encyclopedias that showed how long it would take a steam engine train to reach different parts of the solar system and the sun. I wish we still had those books!
