How Long Does It Take to Get to the Sun?

The time required to reach the Sun depends on the speed of the item travelling there. Distance to the Sun is 92.956 million miles.

Apollo 10, the fastest manned spacecraft, reached a speed of 24,790 miles per hour. At that velocity, it would require around 156 days to reach the Sun. At 36,373 mph, the unmanned NASA New Horizon probe left Earth on its journey to Mars and beyond. If it had travelled to the Sun, it would have taken slightly more than 106 days to arrive.

From the Earth to the Sun, light takes approximately 8 minutes and 20 seconds to travel.
