Fun Fact of the day


Surfaces near the equator move much faster than those in other locations on Earth.

Though the Earth as a whole moves in a circular orbit, not all of its surfaces rotate at the same speed. In fact, according to Scientific American, the surface of the Earth at the equator moves at 360 meters per second—or approximately 1,000 miles per hour—while the speed at the North Pole is effectively zero. (It only rotates once every 24 hours.)
