If you were suddenly to stop moving in relation to everything else, I can imagine being thrown across the room,
because of the rotation of the Earth. I can also imagine being hurled out into space, because of the orbit of the Earth around the sun. But since the solar system is rotating in the Milky Way Galaxy, and I think the current theory is that the universe is expanding, my question is this: in what direction would I seem to be travelling?
In other words, generally towards what stars would I seem to be advancing?
This has haunted me ever since I saw the movie, “The Time Machine”, which I suppose should properly have been called “The Time/Space Machine”.
