Earth to moon
The moons orbit around the earth is not a perfect circle (elliptical), hence the moon is not always the same distance away from Earth. When the moon is the farthest away, it's 252,088 miles away at its closets 238,900 mi. That's almost 32 Earths.
Low Earth orbit (LEO) is an orbit around Earth with an altitude above Earth's surface of 2,000 kilometers (1,200 mi), and an orbital period between about 84 and 127 minutes. Objects below approximately 160 kilometers (99 mi) will experience very rapid orbital decay and altitude loss. HASA, the president of the united states and many government official have stated a multiple time publicly that until they are safely able to get past LEO, they can make it to Mars.
