SOME FACTS ABOUT OUR UNIVERSE AND THE SOLAR SYSTEM
Rushing through the Universe at the incomprehensible speeds of!!! and the enormous amount of Energy/Mass thrown out by the Sun in to Space!!!
1) The earth’s speed at the equator = 1,040 mph. ( See Page 10 ).
2) The earth is moving through its orbit around the sun at 66,661 mph.
3) The sun is carrying itself and its planets towards the star Vega at about 43405.8 mph.
4) Our sun and Vega moves around the galaxy at the blinding speed of 700,000* mph.
5) And our galaxy (the Milky Way) itself rotates at 559,353.6 mph.
6) But that is not all. Our galaxy moves in relation to all other galaxies as they rush through the universe at a speed of more than 1,000,000* mph.
Incredible speeds of :
Thus, as we stand here on earth, and one may get the impression of being relatively inertial, we in reality are travelling at the incomprehensible speed of approximately 2.5 million miles per hour in the resultant of six wildly different directions simultaneously. And all this is happening in real time – here and now.
Enormous amount of Energy/Mass given out by the sun per second:
Our sun - what a powerhouse! I still don’t believe it. During all the billions of years that it has been in existence, it has thrown into space six million tons of matter every second. And it can go on doing it for another ten billion years without using even 1/100th of 1% of its mass.
