"Just remember that you're standing on a planet that evolving, Revolving at 900 miles an hour. It's orbiting at 19 miles a second, So it's reckoned, A sun that is the source of all our power. The sun and you and me and all the stars that we can see, Are moving at a million miles a day, In an outer spiral arm, at 40,000 miles an hour, Of a galaxy we call the Milky Way. Our galaxy itself contains 100 billion stars, It's 100,000 light years side to side, It bulges in the middle, 16,000 light years thick, But out by us it's just 3,000 light years wide. We're 30,000 light years from galactic central point, We go around every 200 million years, And our galaxy is only one of millions of billions, In this amazing and expanding universe..." E. Idle
