Right at this very instant, you are hurtling through space faster than you could possibly imagine.
BBC Earth’s ‘Since You’ve Been Watching’ film explains the science behind how fast we are actually travelling through the solar system – even if you’re sat at a desk or on a train.
For instance, did you know that right now the Earth is moving around the Sun at around 66,487 miles per hour? This is the equivalent to driving around the equator two and a half times in just sixty minutes.
The one minute long film also reveals that in the space of a minute, we all cover the same distance as the diameter of the planet.
Discover the documentary here and let us know what you think of the mindboggling science behind space.
