“What is the Earth orbit speed?” asks Joselo (12)

Joselo I would be interested in why you asked this question.

It is about 108,000 km/h. That is very, very fast,  Think of a fast car..it would be going at about 100km/h. The orbit around the Sun takes 365 days and the distance travelled is 970 million kilometers. Quite big figures.

I would be interested to know why I don’t feel that I am travelling at such a speed?  Why doesn’t the Earth lose its atmosphere?

Feel free to ask another question.
