THE MAXIMUM DISTANCE BETWEEN EARTH AND MARS IS 401 MILLION KILOMETERS, OR 249,169,848 MILES. THIS IS JUST OVER 22 LIGHT MINUTES. 

THIS MEANS THAT IF THEY INVENTED A SPACECRAFT CAPABLE OF TRAVELING AT LIGHT SPPED, PASSENGERS ON THAT SHIP COULD WATCH A MAXIMUM OF ONE EPISODE OF THE OFFICE OR COMPARABLE SITCOM, AND A SHORT EPISODE AT THAT, ON THE JOURNEY FROM EARTH TO MARS. 

ON AVERAGE, PASSENGERS WOULD ARRIVE AT MARS JUST OVER HALFWAY THROUGH THE EPISODE, 12 AND A HALF MINUTES IN, AND WHEN EARTH AND MARS ARE CLOSEST TO ONE ANOTHER, A PASSENGER WOULD BE LUCKY TO GET THROUGH THE THEME SONG, AS THEY WOULD ARRIVE ON MARS A SHORT 3 MINUTES AFTER THEY LEFT. 

TRAVELING FROM EARTH TO URANUS AT LIGHTSPEED WOULD TAKE A MINIMUM OF APPROXIMATELY THE LENTH OF THE FILM “THE DARK KNIGHT” AND A MAXIMUM OF APPROXIMATELY THE LENGTH OF THE FILM “BRAVEHEART.”
