It would depend on how high up you were and what direction you are traveling.

### How fast is earth going it if revolves around the sun on a circle?

The earth is always revolving on its axis but i 23 houres and 56 minutes revolve in a day

### How long would it take to circle the earth in a kayak or canoe?

about a year or less because kayaks and canoes are fast

### How fast does light travel to Jupiter?

At light speed it would take 20 to 40 minutes going from earth, and 50 minutes going from the sun.

### What is the Fastest time to circle the earth?

the sr 71 blackbird set the record for fastest manned airbreathing jet at over 2000 miles per hour (3218 km/h) the equator is roughly 12900 mi. (20761 km.) so it could circle the earth plus fuel filling slows in 6hours and 30 minutes. however space shuttles orbit the earth extremley fast but i am not how sure how fast.

### How fast light from the sun gets to earth?

Approx. 8 minutes.

### How fast could you get to the sun at light-speed?

If you traveled at the speed of light (a current impossibility), you would travel from Earth to the Sun in an average of 8 minutes. Or would you? I suspect that you would burn up well before the 8 minutes were up.

### Is it true that an object launched into space must circle the earth as the moon does?

Not true. An object can fall back to earth, orbit (circle) the earth, or- if moving fast enough, leave the orbit of the earth and go elsewhere. We have sent probes to other planets- they are not circling the earth.

### Why does the light from the sun take so long to reach earth when the light is traveling so fast?

light takes approximately 8 minutes to travel from the sun to the earth. even though it is traveling extremely fast, the earth is about 93million miles away from the sun, so if you think about it 8 minutes is pretty quick

### Does a space station go fast or slow?

A space station goes very fast. It orbits the earth every 90 minutes! (hour and a half)

### How fast would you have to run to do 21 km in 100 minutes?

2 minutes and a half per km

### Why orbit of earth is egg shape?

Well, a detailed analysis is probably quite complicated. But to give you a general idea, at a certain speed, the orbit would be circular - the attraction from the Sun is just enough to change the Earth's velocity (i.e., its direction) so that it becomes a circle - maintaining the speed. If the Earth moves slightly slower, then Earth doesn't have enough momentum to keep in a circle, so it would get closer and closer to the Sun, during half an orbit. However, that would also make Earth faster - in fact, fast enough to get away from the Sun again. The final result is a closed orbit, in the shape of an elipse.Well, a detailed analysis is probably quite complicated.
