How fast am I traveling through space?

How fast are you going?

What is the speed of the surface of the earth through space?

"Consider the movement of the earth's surface with respect to the planet's center. The earth rotates once every 23 hours, 56 minutes and 4.09053 seconds, called the sidereal period, and its circumference is roughly 40,075 kilometers. Thus, the surface of the earth at the equator moves at a speed of 460 meters per second--or roughly 1,000 miles per hour.


100 mph = 1609.344 km/h: The planet's surface spinning around it's center.

"The Earth revolves around the Sun at a speed of about 18.5 miles/sec (30 km/sec"

30 x 60 = 900 km/h. The earth rotating around the Sun.

That brings us to 2509.344 km/h

"The solar system travels at an average speed of 515,000 mph (828,000 km/h). "

"...the earth is moving about our sun in a very nearly circular orbit. 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."

ok getting faster. 107826.05 km/h is the speed the earth goes around the sun? Thats crazy fast.
107826.05 km/h + 2509.344 km/h = 110335.394 km/h

Add that to the speed of our solar system through the galaxy.

490,000 miles per hour or 788578.56 km/h.

for a total of 898913.954 km/h

getting dizzy yet?

The last but not least the speed of the galaxy through the universe.

"how fast is the Milky Way Galaxy moving? The speed turns out to be an astounding 1.3 million miles per hour (2.1 million km/hr)!"

21000000 + 898913.954 = 21898913.954 km/h

Then you can add your speed on the surface of earth.

I am not sure if you can add on orbit around the earth.

But you can, those astronauts would be traveling at:

39897.2471 km/h + 21898913.954 km/h = 21938811.2011 km/h.

"When it comes to vehicles built for space travel, the speed record is staggering. Upon re-entry to the Earth's atmosphere on May 26, 1969, the Apollo 10 Lunar Module reached speeds of 24,791 miles per hour."

Now I don't know if one of of these velocities cancel each other out.

"If you knew that every breath you took could save hundreds of lives into the future had you walked down this path of knowledge, would you run down that path of knowledge as fast as you could?"

"Biodiversity is bio-security."

"...experiments investigated delivery systems and mechanisms of action of Metarhizium spp. (a species of entomopathogenic fungi) to control populations of Varroa destructor mites, considered to be a major contributor to Colony Collapse. These fungi parasitize Varroa mites, greatly reducing them as a threat. (While bees can be susceptible to Metarhizium, because they are meticulous groomers, they easily wipe away the Metarhizium spores, thus avoiding infection.) Unfortunately, current mite controls often focus on chemical treatment..."

A good answer for climate change. We need fourth gen. molten salt nuclear reactors. In the words of Noble Prize winning physicist Carlo Rubbia "Thorium has preeminence over all other sources of energy."
