The current human speed record is shared equally by the trio of astronauts who flew Nasa's Apollo 10 mission. On their way back from a lap around the Moon in 1969, the astronauts' capsule hit a peak of 24,790mph (39,897kmh) relative to planet Earth. Is there some limit, however, beyond which hurtling bodies can no longer bear the strain of speed?
