Milky Way

Fact or Fiction? Earth moves 17 billion kilometres in a year

We are never in the same place twice

Our nearest galaxy is the Milky Way and, in a year, it moves 17 billion kilometres from where it was one a year ago.

So, by virtue of this fact, we have never been in the same place twice. Earth moves with the Milky Way.

The Milky Way galaxy is moving through space at around 550km/s – now that’s fast!
