1 Proteus 1 week ago And we're never still.(all numbers more or less) Earth: • rotates at 1,000 mph • whilst whipping 'round the sun at 67,000 mph. The entire Solar System: • jogs at a brisk 43,000 mph roughly toward the constellation of Vega • while pirouetting at 448,000 mph around the (supermassive black hole at the) center of yon Milky Way in a “galactic year” of 230 million years. The Milky Way: • goes 1.3 million mph, away from the source of the Cosmic Microwave Background, roughly in the direction of Leo and Virgo, and toward The Great Attractor.So every one of us is hauling ass, and going around in dizzying circles. And we've never been in the same place twice. Or, given the speed, even once.Just sayin'.
