But have you ever wonder, how much is take to actually get to Mars?

The smallest recorded distance between Earth and Mars is 34.8 million miles (56 million kilometers). The distance varies because of our orbits.

Even light can take up to 12 minutes to reach the Mars surface.

In 2015, a rocket went up from the Earth at a speed of 36,000 mph or 58,000 kph. In this way, scientists say the journey to Mars takes something like 300 days or roughly ten months.

But if you use a lot of fuel then the journey will reach their 150 days, which is five months.
