Over the years I have written four letters to The New York Times.Two of them were published which shows that my view points were taken into consideration.

HOW FAST THE INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION TRAVELS!


The International Space Station travels in orbit around Earth at a speed of roughly 17,150 miles per hour (that's about 5 miles per second!). This means that the Space Station orbits Earth (and sees a sunrise) once every 92 minutes! You can see the ISS' location and speed at this link which also has a real-time video feed from cameras attached to the outside of the station. Photo NASA-  Text source Cool Cosmos.
