If radio signals from Voyager 1 travel at 3 x 10^5 km/sec from Saturn at opposition (the shortest Earth-Saturn distance, use values from Table 1 in the lab textbook), how long does it take them to get to Earth? Give the answer in minutes.
Shortesr possible distance =746 million miles
= 1.2 0057 * 10 ^9 km
Time taken for signals to reach = 1.20057 *10 ^9 / (3 * 10^5) seconds
= 4.002 * 10^3 seconds
= 4002 seconds
= 66.7 minutes
