Greetings! I read this article on line, where it states that Voyager 1 has an appointment with a star, AC +79 3888, which is 17.6 light years away, in 40,000 years. However, if voyager is traveling at 35,000 mph, that number seems off. Shouldn't it be 319,000 years to travel that distance? I'm only asking because I only barely know what I'm doing here... My calculation: 35000 mph = 328,320,000 mp/year 6T / 328,320,000 =18,274 years to travel 1 ly 18,274 * 17.5 = 319,795 http://www.space.com/22783-voyager-1-interstellar-space-star-flyby.html PS - I'm not accounting for time traveled, since it is only about 18 light minutes.
