    Alpha Centauri is the nearest star system to Earth, 4.3 light years away, but you wouldn't want to drive there. If you had a cosmic car with an unending fuel supply, driving at 55 miles per hour it would still take 52 million years to reach the star!
    Thanks for the blog Marta its so funny for kids.
