How far away from earth is space?

Question asked by: mrquestion

Asked on: 31 Mar 2008

It is closer than you think!

In fact space is said to begin just 100km above the surface of the earth so if you were in a rocket then you would not need to travel for too long to hit space.

When you look in the sky to the moon for instance then you actually only need to travel a tiny, tiny fraction of the way to the moon to enter space.
