Light years away

A light year is approximately six trillion miles (6,000,000,000,000).

If you drove at 60 mph in a car that far, it would take 11,415,525 years (11 million years).

If a galaxy is approximately 2.5 million light years away from us (approximately 15 quintillion miles), if you traveled at 60 mph to get there, it would take 28,538,812,785,388 years (28 trillion years).
