Indian Scientists Land Lander on Moon’s South Pole: A Proud Moment for India
On Wednesday, Indian scientists achieved a significant milestone by successfully landing their lander on the south pole of the Moon. This remarkable feat has filled every countryman with pride, highlighting India’s growing prowess in space exploration. The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) launched the lander on July 14, and it took approximately 40 days to reach its destination. However, if we were to consider traveling to the Moon with the world’s fastest car, how long would it take? Let’s explore this scenario in this news piece.
Distance Between Earth and Moon
The distance between the Earth and the Moon, which we have been familiar with since childhood, is approximately 384,400 km (238,855 miles).
The Fastest Car in the World
Given the constant evolution in the automobile sector, the title of the fastest car in the world keeps changing. Currently, the Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut holds this title with a top speed of 531 km/h. This car is powered by a robust 1600 HP engine and comes with a hefty price tag of around 21 crores.
Journey from Earth to Moon in the Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut
To travel from Earth to the Moon in a Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut sports car, it would take approximately 723 hours (or roughly 30 days), considering the distance of 384,400 km and the car’s top speed of 531 km/h.
Days Required for the Journey
If we calculate the number of days required for this journey, the car would cover a distance of 12,744 km in a day (24 hours). Therefore, it would take around 31 days to reach the Moon by the Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut car.
Moon Journey by Car: A 30-Day Adventure
In summary, a car with a maximum speed of 531 km/h would take approximately 723 hours (equivalent to 30 days) to travel to the Moon. If it were possible to undertake this journey by car, it would take around 2 months to go to the Moon and return.
Traveling at 100 km/h
If we were to travel at a speed of 100 km/h, which is a common speed limit, the journey to the Moon would be significantly longer. In this scenario, covering a distance of 2,400 km in a day (24 hours), it would take approximately 5 months and 10 days to complete the journey of 384,400 km.
In conclusion, the recent achievement of Indian scientists landing their lander on the Moon’s south pole has showcased India’s growing prominence in space exploration. If we were to embark on this celestial journey in a car, it would be an extraordinary adventure taking us approximately 30 days to reach the Moon.
