It's one of the most fundamental contradictions of life on Earth - we're sitting on a planet that's spinning on its own axis as it zooms around the Solar System, and that Solar System is zooming around a galaxy that itself is zooming around the Universe, and here we all are, sitting down feeling like we're not even moving at all.

The reality is that in 2 minutes time, you'll have travelled more than 64,000 miles through the Universe at a speed of over 1.9 million miles per hour. That's around 530 miles per second.
