I. Our Speed Through Space

- The earth revolves around the sun once a year. It also rotates on

its axis every 24 hours.

- The earth’s spin results in a surface speed of 1,000 miles per hour

at the equator.

- The average passenger plane flies at 500 mph

- The speed of the earth due to orbital motion around the sun is 66

times greater still.

- Earth is also moving around the Sun at about 67,000 miles per hour

- During an average human’s lifetime (70 trips around the sun), 41

billion miles are traveled.

- 186,000 miles a second or 6 trillion miles in a year

- Solar-system travel around the galaxy.....500,000 mph

- Overall motion of the galaxy...................1.1 million mph

Mans Technology

- The fastest rocket to leave the Earth’s atmosphere traveling to

Pluto at 36,000 mph.

- New Horizons spacecraft, an Atlas V rocket with five boosters

strapped on it lunched Jan. 19.

- The spacecraft passed by the moon in nine hours.

- SETI

- A great number of astronomers think that, since life supposedly

evolved here on earth, it must have evolved near one of the many stars out there

- SETI (Search for Extra Terrestrial Intelligence)

- The first SETI conference took place at Green Bank in 1961

- Despite all the listening, on thousands of frequencies over many

years, nothing indicating intelligent life has ever been heard.

- Apr. 99 Astronomers discovered the first solar system other than

our own. It has three planets orbiting a star that is 44 light years away (Upsilon Andromeda)
