Factual Information You Should Know before coming to Neptune

  • Neptune is 2,798,000,000 miles away from the sun and it's distance from the Earth is about 2796170365.068 miles.
  • The thick atmosphere of Neptune is made from 74% hydrogen, 25% helium, and about 1% methane. Neptune has icy clouds, and big storms. There are also heavy winds that blow around the planet. The methane around the outside of the planet give Neptune it's rich, blue color.
  • The average temperature of Neptune is -370 degrees.Winds on Neptune travel at around 2,100 km/hour. Neptune has bands of storms that circle the planet. Despite its great distance from the sun, which means it gets little sunlight to help warm and drive its atmosphere, Neptune's winds can reach up to 1,500 miles per hour (2,400 kilometers per hour), the fastest detected yet in the solar system. These winds were linked with a large dark storm that Voyager 2 tracked in Neptune's southern hemisphere in 1989. This oval-shaped, counterclockwise-spinning "Great Dark Spot" was large enough to contain the entire Earth.
  • A year on Neptune is 164.79 years. A day on Neptune is 16 hrs 6 min.
  • Neptune has 13 moons- Triton, Nereid, Proteus, Thalassa, Galatea, Despina, Larissa, Naiad, Sao, Neso, Halimede, Psamathe, Laomedeia.
  • Neptune's gravitational pull compared to earth is 1.12 which means that you would weigh more than you do on Earth.

It also has a feature where you will be able to book your next reservation to come back home. Neptune 1 has a nice, spacious living area with cushy seats and soft blankets. We will be making stops at other planets to get gas, there will be windows to look through, but we do NOT suggest that you go outside of the spacecraft. At this point though, you will be free to move about the cabin and stretch you arms and legs. At the back of the rocket, there is a pharmacy, doctor, and store. If you want an errand done for you because you are low on medication or want something different to eat, then fell free to write it down and give it to a robo-attendant. They will buy everything for you and bring it back to you ASAP. If medical assistance is needed, a robo-attendant will guide you to the back, do NOT get up yourself. After about 12 years we will reach our destination.

How long will it take to get to Neptune?

To get to the planet you will have to go onto a rocket called Neptune 1. The amount of time it takes to get from Earth to Neptune at a speed of about 40,323 km/hour(so you can escape Earth's gravity) is about 12 years, if you were to travel at 100,000 km/hour you would get to Neptune in 5.12 years. Of course, if you go slower you will get there many years later. It all just depends of how fast you go. You should probably expect to arrive about 12 years later.

Price

Though this trip may sound expensive, it is only $2 billion for a party of 8!
