Google: How fast is the Earth moving through space?
Answer: “It covers this route at a speed of nearly 30 kilometers per second, or 67,000 miles per hour. In addition, our solar system–Earth and all–whirls around the center of our galaxy at some 220 kilometers per second, or 490,000 miles per hour.” – Scientific America
I didn’t notice going to work this morning that the Earth is traveling those speeds, did you?
What happens if it stopped? Should we call in sick?
There is so much happening all around us that we pick and choose what it is we are noticing. Lingering is the fact that the way things are not the way things will always be.
