    ASTONISHING FACT : HOW MUCH HAVE YOU MOVED ACROSS THE UNIVERSE,FROM THE DAY YOU WERE BORN

    You know how the Earth is moving around the Sun and how the Sun is moving along with the solar system across the Milky Way.

    Everything is moving…so you know, we can actually calculate how much does the Earth move throughout the lifespan of a human being.

    Or you can say – how much does a Human Being move across the universe through his entire life span!


    This is interesting-

    – A human being moves roughly 500 BILLION km around the Milky Way through his entire life or to be precise 486289301706 km and

    – A Human Being moves 1332009826560 km ( Approx 1 TRILLION kms) across the universe from the day he is born to the day he dies!

    -So this is approximately the distance that light travels in about 20 days. Peanuts !!

    This distance is practically nothing as compared to the vastness of the universe.


    Let’s break it down then …..

    So a Man stranding on any point on earth moves as the earth Spins around it’s axis.

    And as the earth spins you spin with it and you also revolve around the sun

    And this circular way as shown above is how you move around in the universe right….? Wrong !! You don’t actually move in circles around the sun because the sun is itself moving around the Milky Way galaxy along with the solar system.

    So how does your motion actually look like as you move around with the sun ??


    This is how you actually move in the Universe-

    As the sun moves around the Milky Way so do all the planets orbiting it including Earth.

    This is how the earth is actually moving around the sun and this is how you – sitting on earth are moving in the universe.

    In your entire life time, you move about a trillion kilometres across the expanse of the universe. From a distance the motion of the earth and you sitting on it would look like this.

    This is your entire life Time on planet Earth ! A tiny line representing 1 TRILLION KMs is actually nothing as compared to this vast never ending universe ; the distance travelled by light in just 20 days. Morale of the Story : Take it easy!
