10,000 kilometers per hour is about one-third as fast as The Space Shuttle
In other words, it's 0.358720 times the speed of The Space Shuttle, and the speed of The Space Shuttle is 2.78770 times that amount.
(Orbiter vehicle velocity)
The space shuttle orbits at a speed of 27,877 kph. 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.
