Did you know that you were always moving, even in your sleep?
Well the good news is that you do not ever have to worry about feeling like you're going nowhere in your life! You are actually constantly moving, thanks to the cosmos, let me break this down for you (clue: Im pretty sure that our Space Lovers, Astronomy Lovers, Men and Women in Science have an idea of why).
It's actually pretty simple:
You're on a planet that is orbiting a star at 30 kilometers per second. Not per hour, per second (yes it's actually crazy fast). To give you a scale, the fastest car you'll ever own will probably top at 300 kilometers per hour.
That star is orbiting the centre of a galaxy at 250 kilometers per second. Again we are talking about seconds. That's even faster.
Now this galaxy is moving through the universe at a rate of 600 kilometers per second.
Actually since you started reading this, you have travelled about 3 000 kilometers.
And oh, the universe this galaxy is in is also expanding at 60 kilometers per seconds
So the next time you think that you're life is going nowhere, well, think again!
