A light-year is the distance covered by light in a single year.

A light-year is the distance covered by light in a single year.
It is the distance that light can travel in one year. Light moves at a velocity of about 300,000 kilometers (km) each second. So in one year, it can travel about 10 trillion km. More p recisely, one light-year is equal to 9,500,000,000,000 kilometers.

It travels at around 36,373 mph. One light-year is miles. (That's 5,878,499,810,000 miles, or nearly 6 trillion miles). So, it would take New Horizons 18,449 years to travel one light year.

Light-year is the distance light travels in one year. Light zips through interstellar space at 186,000 miles (300,000 kilometers) per second and 5.88 trillion miles (9.46 trillion kilometers) per hour.
