You want to get out of the Milky Way? Travel 1.2 million mph.

Leave the milky way-just travel at a speed of 1.2 million mph and evade the Milky Way.

A fanatical team of researchers from the Leibniz Institute for Astrophysics in Potsdam, Germany is out with this new theory. A Radial Velocity Experiment survey, they analyzed the motion of 90 high-velocity stars and were able to essentially calculate the speed at which objects can exit the Milky Way.

They say that an aircraft can leave the Milky Way if they travel at a speed of 1.2 million mph. Your spaceship would have to hit a staggering 1.2 million miles per hour, or .2 percent of the speed of light to escape our Galaxy’s gravitational pull, though.

Astronomer Joss Bland-Hawthorn explains this idea,

“I know it’s a crazy idea, but if you had lots of matter and lots of antimatter, you could power a spaceship out of the galaxy.”

Something is going to make you sad now, such aircrafts are not yet build in here, but hope, may be tomorrow. Technology is always on the urge to develop.
