You may have visited every country on the planet, but the greatest journey of your life is the one that you are on at this very moment!
DID YOU KNOW THAT, RIGHT NOW, EVERYONE ON EARTH IS TRAVELING THROUGH SPACE AT A SPEED OF MORE THAN 100,000 KILOMETERS PER HOUR?
DID YOU KNOW THAT, EACH YEAR, EVERYONE ON EARTH IS TRAVELING A DISTANCE OF 1.5-MILLION KILOMETERS AS OUR PLANET ORBITS THE SUN?
On behalf of the Société Internationale des Voyageurs Planétaires — the International Society of Planetary Travelers for our English-speaking friends — we commemorate this stellar achievement every day for thousands of people around the world, young and old, as they celebrate another incredible trip around the Sun.
That’s right: it’s not just another birthday, another successful orbit through space!
It’s not the years, it’s the mileage. Looking at 34.5 billion miles around the Sun — 59 trips. Okay, sometimes it’s the years.
