Walk To The Moon
How long will it take our Fit Explorers to walk to the moon?
Mission X is an international challenge - and while we compete against teams in our own country, we are working together with all the teams to "walk to the moon!" Every point contributed from every country gets us a step closer to our goal.
Did you know?
The average distance from the earth to the moon is 238,857 miles or 384,403 km.
It would take the average human 478 MILLION steps to get to the moon, and at a speed of 3 mph or 4.8 km/h, it would take 79,619 hours. If you walked by yourself, and did not stop, it would take you about 9 YEARS to get to the moon.
Fit Explorers worldwide are adding points (steps) every day as they complete activities - check in every week to see how close they are coming to the moon!
Astro Charlie is getting ready for the Mission X 2015 Challenge by exercising, eating healthy and learning about the challenges of living in space. As Charlie prepares for his mission, children from Chile and South Korea are joining together to help Astro Charlie get ready! Every activity the children do will gain points to give Astro Charlie energy to Train Like an Astronaut and travel around the world. Once he is ready for launch in January, other children from around the globe will Train Like Astronauts for points to get Charlie all the way to the Moon! It really does take people from around the world to make a space mission successful!

The average distance around the Earth is 40 000 kilometers (25 000 miles). It would take the average human 66 MILLION steps to walk around the Earth. At a speed of about 5 kilometers per hour (3 miles per hour), it would take 8 333 hours which is 347 days. So, if you walked by yourself, and did not stop, it would take you almost 1 YEAR to walk around the Earth. Fit Explorers worldwide are adding points every day as they complete activities - check in every week to see how the points are moving Astro Charlie around our planet Earth as he gets ready for his flight to the Moon!
