Mars is the most habitable planet in the Solar System after Earth. But how long does it take to get to Mars? Depending on the technology, the red planet’s position, and some other things, somewhere between 150 to 300 days.

Once every two years or so, Mars and Earth reach their closest points, with the red planet being as close as 55 million kilometers / 34 million miles.

Many space agencies have taken advantage of this orbital alignment and sent many spacecraft to Mars. The journey usually takes between 150 to 300 days, depending on the speed of the launch, the alignment, and the length of the trip.
