How fast are we hurtling through the cosmos? Well folks I had just read a news story about a meteor entering the atmosphere at 64K/mph.

Slash Gear

So then the question "How fast are we moving through space?"

Well according to Scientific American we are hauling (Biblical Beast of Burden)

S. A.


So depending on the angle that the Earth caught the meteor we must have overtaken the piece of space rock.

Fixed link to Scientific American article

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.
