Earth's circumference= 2,4901.55 miles
One day= 24 hours
Average speed of a jet airliner= 500 MPH
Speed of world's fastest jet-powered plane= 2,194 MPH
So I had this idea.
It's kind of impossible to do it the way I was thinking of but it would be insane.
Last night I was listening to Sunday Morning New York Blue by Rob Thomas (which by
the way is a great song which you should listen to) and thought of this.
"Another Saturday is over
Here comes Sunday shining through
I could stay right here forever
In Sunday morning New York blue
Feeling just the way I do
Dancing our way into
Sunday morning New York blue"
So I started wondering if that would be possible.
In order to do it you couldn't stay in the same place, so that part wouldn't happen.
But it's the same idea.
It's basically following daylight around the world. Traveling with the sun so you'd
never be in the dark.
You'd have to cover 2,4901.55 miles in 24 hours (if you were on the Equator).
It would be easier if you were further north/south, 'cause it would be a shorter
But you could still do it!
You'd need a beast of a plane, but it could work.
It would be kinda rushed so you wouldn't have time to enjoy the sunset everywhere
around the world in 24 hours like I was hoping... but it's a cool thought.
