According to several researches, it has been found that if you launch a rocket from the surface of the Earth, it requires a speed of almost 7.9 kilometers per second i.e. 4.9 miles per second in order to reach space. This velocity required by the rockets to travel in space is 20 times greater than the speed of sound. However, according to astronauts, they feel the same speed that the passengers of a commercial plane do. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Attachment Select file Browse Featured image Select file Browse Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
