12 facts about the fastest things in the world
The most fastest in the world
Typically, the velocity characterizes the speed of movement and direction of movement. In science and in the broad sense of speed is usually understood as the rate of change of any quantity. And you wonder about the speed? What do you think, who or what on earth all the faster? Of course, the speed of light. But for each macro – or microcosm of the velocity of its own. For example, your movement speed to a snail will be prohibitive. But for us the velocity of the bullet is incredible. Speed attracted people since ancient times. Because the speed of movement depended not only luck on the hunt in the first place, it was a matter of survival, because man was surrounded by predators in the wild, from which it was necessary to be able to escape quickly.
You will not find anything else so many books, scholarly papers and films etc. as about speed. Since ancient times, writers, artists and even poets praised this physical value. But usually the speed is connected to our land with different Guinness world records. Today we want to talk about the most interesting facts connected with the fastest in the world of things and animals.
We have compiled a very useful and interesting information about the speed that surrounds us. So there you go.

After all, the Cheetah, like all living things, can not reverse the laws of physics. Few people know, but this speed Cheetah reaches due to the claws on the feet, which are not drawn, like most felines. In the end, during acceleration, the Cheetah uses its claws like spikes on football boots. Thanks to the adhesion to the surface of the earth this beast and manages to accelerate to incredible for terrestrial mammals speeds.
