Parsecs in Science Fiction “You’ve never heard of the Millennium Falcon? … It’s the ship that made the Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs.”
The distance to Alpha Centauri A & B is roughly 4.35 light years. Calculate this in kilometres and parsecs. Kilometres : 1 light year = 9.46 x 10 12 km distance to Alpha Centaui = 9.46 x 10 12 x 4.35 = 4.12 x 10 13 km parsecs : 1 pc = 3.26 light years distance = 4.35 / 3.26 = 1.33 pc Calculations using the speed of light 26 . 3 35 . 4
