The speed of a Winchester
.270 Rifle Bullet is 1,924 mph.
Our sun circles the Milky Way at 486,000 mph.
That’s right, seven billion of us are crammed
on a tiny speck of dust circling an 11,000-degree
fireball that flies at 252 times the speed of a bullet
through a limitless vacuum.
But wait… 486,000 mph is only
the speed of the sun as it
circles the Milky Way galaxy.
The Milky Way, it turns out,
is flying through space…
are you ready for this?…
at 1.3 million mph.
