Did you know that our galaxy is moving

Did you know that we are moving through space at the rate of 530km a second.
Our Galaxy – the Milky Way is spinning at a rate of 225 kilometers (306 miles) per second. In addition, the galaxy is travelling through space at the rate of 305 kilometers per second. This means that we are traveling at a total speed of 530 kilometers (330 miles) per second. That means that in one minute you are about 19 thousand kilometers away from where you were. Scientists do not all agree on the speed with which the Milky Way is travelling – estimates range from 130 – 1,000 km/s. It should be said that Einstein’s theory of relativity, the velocity of any object through space is not meaningful.
