space shuttle travels at about 7.4581x10^3 m/s. An astronaut takes about 1.5933x10^2 ms to blink an eye. How far does the space shuttle travel in that time, expressed to 4 significant figures?
1.5933x10^2 ms = 1.5933x10^-1 s
Multiply that by the speed for the distance traveled in that "blink of an eye". Round the answer to four figures.
