How long does it take a rocket to get to Mars?

Answer

It is estimated that a rocket will take 260 days to get to mars. This is factoring in a trip under the present speeds that rockets can travel as well as the details of the orbit you take between the earth and the mars. However, nuclear-powered rockets can cut that time to more than half.
