The exact amount of time it would take to travel from Earth to Uranus will depend on the type of travel, the speed of travel and the path chosen. For example, it took the Voyager 2 spacecraft about 9 years to travel near Uranus in 1986.
A specific amount of time to travel between these two planets is not possible because the distance between Earth and Uranus can vary. For example, the shortest distance between Earth and Uranus is 1.6 billion miles. The longest distance between these planets if 1.98 billion miles. Therefore, a spacecraft can choose one of many trajectory arcs to travel from Earth to Uranus.Learn More
Uranus is around four times larger than Earth. Its mass is made of helium, ice and ammonia, which contributes to its color. Because of its mass and position in the universe, Uranus presents significantly different conditions to those on Earth.Full Answer >
As of 2006, spacecraft originating on Earth can reach Jupiter in 13 months. The effective time that it takes to send objects from Earth to Jupiter continues to decrease with technological improvements.Full Answer >
The 12 spacecraft sent to or sent past Mars have taken between 128 to 333 days from Earth, as of January 2015. Travel between Earth and Mars varies significantly and depends largely on the positions of the planets in relation to each other as well as the spacecraft propulsion system.Full Answer >
The time it takes to reach Pluto depends on speed. As of 2014, no spacecraft has ever traveled from Earth to Pluto. NASA's New Horizons spacecraft was launched on Jan. 19, 2006 and is expected to arrive at Pluto on July 14, 2015, 11 years after it took off.Full Answer >
