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?

  • @Raven I will only accept knots if its either granny knots or monkey fists knots per nanosecond and not that silly nautical term :P
