How long would it take to get to Mars?


Hohman Transfer Orbit is the mainstay of interplanetary space travel. It depends on the details of the orbit you take between the Earth and Mars. The typical time during Mars's closest approach to the Earth every 1.6 years is about 260 days. Again, the details depend on the rocket velocity and the closeness of the planets, but 260 days is the number I hear most often give or take 10 days. Some high-speed transfer orbits could make the trip in as little as 130 days.

In addition to practical limits on regular rocket thrust, you also have to remember that a faster travel time means a higher arrival velocity. That means a more violent reaction
Mars can be 100-380 million km from earth, which is about 100x as far as the

It looks like a trip to Mars would take approximately 260 days. It may be possible to get there in a shorter amount of time depending on where you are leaving earth from and what you are using. The 260 day average is using a high powered rocket. I hear the rockets are pricey! You can find more information here:
