Do you know? I was reading on the internet about the universe, etc. It is a very interesting subject. Do you know in our 24 hour day (23 hours and 56 minutes) the earth is spinning on it's axis at more than 1,000 miles an hour? And that traveling in it's orbit around the sun ( 1 year ) it is traveling at 66,000 miles an hour? It gets faster than that when you get into our solar system traveling around in the Milky Way. It travels about 600,000 mph and takes about 200 million years to make one pass. And how fast is the Milky Way traveling through space? Astronomers calculate that the Milky Way travels 1.3 million mph through space. This calculates that a jet traveing from Los Angeles to New York would be made in just under 7 seconds.

  1. Sometimes when I am walking Cassie at night, I think about that we are on a planet spinning so fast in it's orbit and going on fast. I get fascinated by all that.
