Q:

How long would it take to drive to the sun going 60 mph?

A:

If it were possible to drive from the Earth to the sun, the amount of time required for the journey is slightly more than 1.55 million hours at a rate of 60 mph. That is approximately 64,597 days or about 177 years.

The sun is approximately 93.02 million miles from the Earth. In comparison, if it were possible to drive at a rate of 60 mph to reach the moon, the time required is just slightly less than 3,981 hours. This translates to just over 165 days or about 5 ½ months. The moon is approximately 238,857 miles from the Earth, according to About.com.
