## Can torch light reach space?

Originally Answered: How far can the light from a torch go? It will travel forever and will cover infinite distance. However the further it travels the lesser will be it’s intensity and so for practical purposes it’s intensity will become almost zero beyond a certain finite distance.

## How far can a flashlight shine?

The Brightness of a 1000 Lumen Flashlight A 1000 lumen flashlight is quite bright and, depending on the lens or reflector design, powerful enough to reach a distance of 200 meters or more. This type of flashlight allows you to see objects from a far distance.

Can Laser reach moon?

The typical red laser pointer is about 5 milliwatts, and a good one has a tight enough beam to actually hit the Moon—though it’d be spread out over a large fraction of the surface when it got there. The atmosphere would distort the beam a bit, and absorb some of it, but most of the light would make it.

Do flashlights work on the Moon?

The more the light is absorbed, the more ice there may be on the surface. Therefore, the Lunar Flashlight will not only aid the astronauts on their mission to the Moon, it will also provide scientists with valuable information on how much water could be frozen on the lunar surface.

### What kind of flashlights do police use?

Popular police flashlights include the Streamlight Stinger DS LED HL and Streamlight Strion DS HL. Both models are rechargeable and feature high brightness beams designed to light up a room but also provide ample beam range.

### How far apart should torches be in Minecraft?

Place a row of torches with gaps of 11 blocks between them (a torch every 12th block).

Why can’t you shine a torch on the Moon?

Divergence along with the scattering of light means that you can never shine a torch and expect to see light emitted from it on the moon, and any rays of light that do reach the surface of the moon wouldn’t be seen because the surface of the moon is far brighter than a few stray light rays.

How far does a torch light travel to the Moon?

Most of the light from your torch (and I mean probably over 99.999\% of it) will not even reach the moon due to scattering. The light from your torch has to travel a distance of over 238,000 miles or 384,400 kilometres to reach the moon.

#### Can you see a flashlight from the Moon?

If the flashlight in question is a little penlight flashlight powered by a couple of AA batteries, and if the eye in question is your naked eye, then the answer is, “no — you cannot see the flashlight from the moon”.

#### Can a torch light travel through the Earth’s atmosphere?

Visible light from a torch has a 50\% (blue light) to 90\% (red light) chance of making it through the Earth’s atmosphere, depending on the amount of dust and aerosols in the atmosphere and how close the Moon is to the horizon. Light travels in straight lines. The Moon has an angular diameter of only 0.5 degrees as seen from the Earth.
