# Kerbol System Distance Chart

## Question

Can someone tell me what the distance from Kerbol is for each planet? For example, how far away is Duna from Kerbol? If possible, I would also appreciate it if you put in the moons as well. Thank you in advance! (kilometers, miles, AU if possible please)

The KSP wiki is your friend for many things, this included. The game uses meters instead of km, probably because all the equations and calcs need inputs in meters.

As for AU - that's an Earth-centric measure where the average distance of the Earth to the Sun (or Semi-Major Axis, SMA) = 1AU = 149597871km.

So Kerbin is 0.091AU out from its sun or 1KU (Kerbonautical Unit )

I'll leave the rest of the math to you but it is interesting to note that the system Kerbin is in approximates the relative distances of our own solar system. Jupiter = ~5.2 AU vs Jool = ~5.1KU
