How fast earth is moving through space depends on what you’re comparing it to.
The Earth is moving in several different directions at the same time, each at breakneck speed.
Rotating on its axis, the Earth goes 460 meters a second (roughly 1,000 miles per hour) at the equator.
Going around the sun, the Earth moves about 30 kilometers per second (roughly 67,000 miles per hour).
Our solar system whirls around the center of our galaxy at about 220 kilometers per second (about 490,000 miles per hour).
Meanwhile, our entire galaxy is traveling at a speed of about 1,000 kilometers per second (620 miles per hour) toward a region of space called the Great Attractor, which is about 150 million light years away. Hold on tight!
