Frame Of Reference Blues

Earth Frame of Reference for Axis

Are we going fast
Are we going slow
It’s really hard for me to know
Watching space go by
Is to drift really to fly
Is adrift to fly?

Are we headed forward
Are we in reverse
What is our heading
What is our course
Of course….

Are we going up
Are we going down
Are we just spinning around and around

“The point is that motion is relative and the entire concept of motion is very subtle because it depends on the chosen frame of reference. On Earth we generally have a fixed background against which we assess movement.” — NASA

What would it be like without a frame of reference? If you don’t have a frame of reference, can you tell how fast you are going?
