The Latest On Black Holes

A word about mysterious places and ancient civilizations. The things someone did with stone thousands of years ago is incredible. Even more incredible is that there are examples of this type of handy work on all 6 continents. Are you into ancient aliens? How about explanations as to how they sculpted giant stones? Check out the links to see how some contend these mysteries are connected.Puma Punku Bolivia

The map shows the proximity of the sites in Peru and Bolivia that contain some terrific examples of these mysteries. There must be a reason for this. I think there is more to be found in the region that has remained hidden for all these years. This demands more exploration!




Now let me blow your mind! Try to wrap your head around this.

The earth spins at 1,000 miles per hour.

The earth rotates around the sun at about 67,000 miles per hour.

The sun is rotating around the galaxy about 485,000 miles per hour. In fact, the majority of the suns in all galaxies rotate around their respective galaxy very close to this same speed. No one really knows exactly why this is. It is being explained as the result of dark matter.

The galaxy along with the local group of galaxies are moving through space at about 1,340,000 miles per hour.

Space is expanding at about 152,112 miles per hour.

Add it all up and we are traveling through space at least 2,000,000 miles per hour. Other estimates say upwards of 2.8 million miles per hour. That is somewhere between 550 and 800 miles per second. In any case it is fast - damn fast.

It's hard to imagine traveling that fast. It's impossible to relate to these speeds especialy when we feel like we are not moving at all.

As a comparison, the speed of light is 6.706e+8 mph or 670,600,000 miles per hour.
That is about 300 times faster than we are traveling through space.
