Hello and welcome from 497 million miles away

5 01 2004

As of 6 a.m. PST on New Year’s Day, Spirit traveled 481.9 million kilometers since launch and had 5.1 million kilometers left to go. That means it travelled the last 5.1 million kilometers in 3 days! Crazy. According to the Nasa website it was travelling at approx 72,100 miles per hour. Super crazy.
According to my calculations that would take less than three minutes to travel from New York City to Paris. (France not Ontario 🙂
