The problem, as I stated before, is this:

1) Jupiter will be far moved in that time.

2) in a straight line? both on the same side of the Sun, or on opposite sides.

Let me show you the problem...

Earth,Jupiter on the same side, aligned with the Sun.

DistanceEarthto Jupiter= Jupiterradius-Earthradius= (5.46-1)*92,000,000miles

= 4.46*92Million miles

time = distance/speed= 4.46*92000/10=41,032 hrs=1709days which during that time (4.68years), Jupiter has moved a quarter of its orbit (it takes 11 years for Jupiter to go around the Sun).
