I am trying to get a sense of distance and scale of the universe and of the structures on the planets, but all I have is a single velocity display with a number on it. What is the unit of measurement of velocity for the number being displayed? Is it meters/second? miles/hour? furlongs per fortnight?

+1 for 'furlongs per fortnight'. –  Shinrai Jan 24 '12 at 1:53
    
What about knots per nanosecond? –  Raven Dreamer Jan 24 '12 at 2:03
    
@Raven I will only accept knots if its either granny knots or monkey fists knots per nanosecond and not that silly nautical term :P –  z ' Jan 24 '12 at 2:33
    
Or... knautical, as case may be. –  Raven Dreamer Jan 24 '12 at 3:08
