Today, I'm setting off on a journey toward the nearest black hole. But don't worry - I'll keep you in the know by live-streaming my entire adventure! I'll have someone to talk to during the flight, and he can help me if things get really tough! My travel buddy's name is Liam. Liam is a robot with artificial intelligence.
Space distances are seriously long. That's why traveling there would take way more time than you'd like to spend on the road! For example, Voyager 1, a space probe launched in 1977, was traveling out of the Solar System at a speed of 40,000 miles per hour. If my spacecraft moved at the same speed, it would take me a whole 77,000 years to get to the nearest star! But luckily, my spaceship is much faster than that. So let the journey begin!
