Explanation:

Our nearest solar system is Epsilon Eridani and it's roughly 10,5 light-years away, or about 61725568183108 miles away. The fastest man-made object we have launched into space is Helios 2 with a speed of 157078 mph. Given this information we can calculate that a trip to our nearest solar system.

$\frac{61725568183108}{157078} = 3929562527 , 57$

So it would take 3929562527,57 hours, 163731771,982 days or 448580,197211 years
