Over 8 years, in fact. "Space Seed" was in 2267, and this film mostly takes place in early 2259 judging from the stardate. And Khan was definitely found some months before that.
Was a time specified for how much earlier Khan was woken up before the film? Based on the dialogue we got regarding how he worked with Section 31 to develop weapons and such, I had this weird assumption they found him years before the movie. Did I mishear the background explanation and think he meant the Kelvin's destruction and it was actually Vulcan's?
I may be remembering incorrectly, but I think he said that, due to the destruction of Vulcan, Starfleet was stepping up their exploratory efforts (presumably to find a "New Vulcan") and that's when they found the Botany Bay.
