On the other hand, the distances between planets, stars and galaxies are so huge we can’t even reach them in our lifetimes. In this short article, I’m going to give you a sense of large distances that are not possible on Earth but only in space and extremely high speeds we need to cover them.

We rarely run in our homes to reach any corner, as we can just walk and reach any…


Recent news that NASA engineer, David Burns, proposed an idea for helical rocket engine that can make space travel almost at the speed of light not only amused me but also gave a ray of hope that one day humans would be able to travel to other star systems inside our galaxy and possibly to other galaxies as well. Given that nothing can go faster than speed of light, reaching even close to that speed would be nothing but miracle! At the speed of light, which is approximately one billion kilometres per hour, it takes less than 2 seconds to…
