…And die in the cold nothing of space. On average, the moon orbits 238,800 miles away from Earth. Here are spooky facts about the moon you never knew.
Assuming you time your botched moonshot with a solar eclipse so that the moon is perfectly aligned with Sol, our nearest star, you only have another 93 million miles or so of floating to go before you reach it.
Unfortunately, you’d die of cosmic radiation about halfway there. The good news is, you needn’t leave your living room to be “among” the stars. As a resident of the universe, you already are!
