Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

 It's about one-twentieth as fast as a Jet Fighter In other words, the speed of a Jet Fighter is 22 times 0.019 miles per second. (for Lockheed Martin F-16, a.k.a. Fighting Falcon, a.k.a. Viper) (maximum speed at altitude)An F-16's maximum speed at altitude is approximately 0.420 miles per second. The F-16 has a flight ceiling of approximately 15 km (9.32 mi). It's about twenty times as fast as Walking Pedestrians (in Manhattan) In other words, the speed of Walking Pedestrians (in Manhattan) is 0.042 times 0.019 miles per second. (Manhattan; average speed; 8,978 person-sample)A 2006 Study by the New York City Department of City Planning found that pedestrians in that city walk at an average rate of 0.00081 miles per second. Pedestrians wearing headphones, the study went on to find, walk at a slightly faster 0.00088 miles per second It's about one-thirtieth as fast as a Bullet (Rifle) In other words, 0.019 miles per second is 0.0334 times the speed of a Bullet (Rifle), and the speed of a Bullet (Rifle) is 29.90 times that amount. (5.56 x 45 mm, a.k.a. 5.56 NATO)A 5.56 x 45 mm cartridge is fired at a velocity of 0.5690 miles per second. As the NATO rifle cartridge, it is used by the military forces of more than thirty-one countries, including use in the M16 series, M4 Carbine, HK-416, and M249 Squad automatic weapons used by the United States armed forces. It's about 60 times as fast as an Iceberg In other words, the speed of an Iceberg is 0.02 times 0.019 miles per second. (a.k.a. Berg) (Newfoundland iceberg average)Moved by ocean currents and wind, icebergs can drift at speeds of about 0.0003 miles per second. The largest iceberg ever recorded was a found near Baffin Island, Nunavut and was estimated to be nine billion metric tons. It's about one-two-hundred-fiftieth as fast as The Space Shuttle In other words, 0.019 miles per second is 0.0039487 times the speed of The Space Shuttle, and the speed of The Space Shuttle is 253.250 times that amount. (Orbiter vehicle velocity)The space shuttle orbits at a speed of 4.81170 miles per second. During liftoff, the space shuttle accelerates to orbital speed in 8.5 minutes, consuming over 1.59 million kg (3.51 million lbs) of propellant in the process. It's about 450 times as fast as a Sloth In other words, the speed of a Sloth is 0.0022 times 0.019 miles per second. (for Brown-throated three-toed sloth, Bradypus variegatus)The three-toed sloth moves along the ground at an average speed of 0.0000410 miles per second. Long thought to be lengthy sleepers, a 2008 study concluded that sloths sleep an average of only 9.6 hours per day. It's about one-one-thousand-five-hundredth as fast as a Meteor In other words, the speed of a Meteor is 1,400 times 0.019 miles per second. (formally Meteoroid or meteorite, depending on the context; a.k.a. "shooting star", a.k.a. "falling star")Small meteoroids enter the Earth's atmosphere at speeds between 6.90 miles per second and 45 miles per second, depending on their size. The fireball effect, known as ablation, ceases once the atmosphere has slowed the meteoroid to a velocity of about 1.70 miles per second.
