Question: What sort of spaceship would you need to get to Pluto and how long would it take?

  1. There is currently a robotic spaceship on its way to Pluto called New Horizons! It left Earth in 2006 and will arrive in July 2015, so it will take about nine years. See this link:

    If we wanted to send humans there, it would probably take the same amount of time, but we would need to protect ourselves from all the cosmic radiation that bombards the spacecraft.
