# How Long Would It Take You To Get To Mars From Earth?

The duration of going from the Earth to Mars depends upon the kind of spacecraft that the object is boarding. But as previous experience has always been taken as the benchmark to decide the duration of anything, we can take the example the Mars Pathfinder.

The Mars Pathfinder was launched in the year 1996 on December fourth and it reached to the planet mars in the year 1997 on July fourth. So according to this calculation you can say that it takes seven months if you want to go to the planet mars from the planet earth.

That mission was considered as a benchmark in the history of the discoveries about mars and it consist of a rover called Sojourner who landed on the surface of the planet and moved around to find the truth about the planet.

A good answer would be about seven - nine months. It all depends though on where Earth and Mars are in their orbits around the sun. The closer the distances are from Earth to Mars, the faster we can get there and vice versa.

Einstein said that IF YOU COULD GO FASTER THAN THE SPEED OF LIGHT, and you left earth and went to mars, and cam right back to the Earth!
You Might get back before you ever left!!!
He didn't say how much faster!

But that's a theory.
