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
