77 days

I’ve run the numbers. I’ve done the research. I’ve asked around. I’m sure you’ve all been wondering this since the day you were born.

If you figure it takes 2-days to fly completely around Earth (at 400 mph) then, by my calculations, it would take approximately 77 days to fly completely around the Sun. Of course, that would be assuming the Sun was like Earth with similar atmospheric conditions, gravity, and temperatures! Interesting nonetheless.

No, I will not divulge my sources. Yes, I am not completely sure I made the calculations right. It could be more like 200 days as I did the calculations a few days ago.
