How fast is New Horizon’s moving as it flew by Pluto? We know the numbers: the pod that’s taken nine year to reach Pluto is moving at 36,000 mph.

Clay Bavor has created a Gif to help us understand the phenomenal speed.

Flying at 37k feet, this is what it would be like to look out the window of a 747 vs. an SR-71 vs. a New Horizons.
