Default 250,000,000 years?

"... Every passing hour brings the solar system 43,000 miles closer to Globular Cluster M13 in Hercules -- and still there are some misfits who insist that there is no such thing as progress. (Ransom K. Ferm)"

If I haven't slipped a decimal someplace, I calculate that we arrive at M13 in something like 250 million years. Something must be wrong with that, though, it doesn't seem to me to be long enough.

Perhaps we should take the scenic route instead?
