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.

230 million years to orbit our galaxy!

Our solar system and all the stars we see are orbiting the center of the Milkyway, our galaxy at a speed of 828.000 km/hour. But even at that speed, it will take about 230 million years to make a complete orbit. 230 million years ago, in the Triassic period, all the earth landmass was just a supercontinent called Pangaea extended from pole to pole.
