Is it possible to visit other stars

There are about 81 visible stars just 20 light years away from our Sun.
The nearest one is Proximus Centauri, which is about 4.3 light years away.

Getting there is a difficult task. Because light year is an incredibly long distance.
It’s the distance that light in a vaccum will travel in an entire year. And in just
one second light can travel so far as to circles the entire Equator Earth 7 times.

For example : A faster bullet can travel at about 1,500 m/s. And Voyoger 1 is travelling at about 17,000 m/s relative to the sun .Also relative to our sun Earth is orbiting at the speed of 29,800 m/s , Of course this is much fast. But the fastest man-made object ever was the Helios 2 Solar Probe which traveled at a maximum speed of 70,220 m/s.

 

 

Even at this speed (70,220 m/s) , it takes 19,000 years to reach the nearest star to us (Proximus Centauri).

After knowing this you might think that we will ever visit others stars. But I can say there is a change of visiting other stars if you are capable to travel at the speed of light . Well, our technology is developing day by day and there is change of making more fastest things .

Scientists say that we might have grip on our whole galaxy in 5 million years , that’s pretty long right .Of course none of us will be alive still that many years . But thinking about future will be pretty awesome, right. We are developing day by day . Let’s see what were the more things we could achieve .
