To complete one rotation in 24 hours, the earth must spin at an average of 1,000 mph. When you consider that, it doesn’t matter whether I’m power-walking at 3 miles per hour down an asphalt sidewalk, or this snail is moving at a leisurely 3 inches an hour along the edge of a rain-drenched leaf, we are both on a moving surface, hurtling through space at a mind-boggling speed.
