This video made me think about interstellar space travel. Voyager 1 is currently the fastest moving man-made object, traveling at approximately 38,100 mph (61,300 kph). At that rate, it will take 17,614 years to travel one light year. At warp 9.9, (ref. The 37’s), it would take 24 minutes and 29.66 seconds.
