# Things Going Very Fast

## Recommended Posts

Over on G+, they were talking about the (incorrect) Speed values of the Fast Hero in the Worldbook.

On a whim, I decided to calculate the Speed value of some very fast things.

The Large Hadron Collider throws things around 500 miles in 2.7 milliseconds.

Assuming I've done the dimensional analysis properly, that's about 2,980,266,667 meters in 1 combat round.

Which is Speed value 48.

Let's try another.

The Speed of Light or "c" is 2,997,924,580 meters in 10 seconds.

Which is Speed 48.

What about Star Trek's Warp Factors? They changed the scale between the original series and Next Gen, so I'll use Next Gen figures.

(I used http://www.anycalculator.com/warpcalculator.htm to convert Warp into "multiples of c".)

Warp Factor = • c = Torg Value

1 = 1 = 48

2 = 10 = 53

3 = 39 = 56

4 = 102 = 58

5 = 214 = 60

6 = 393 = 61

7 = 656 = 61

8 = 1024 = 63

9 = 1516 = 64

9.9 = 3053 = 65

10 = Infinite speed

And that's Log scales for you!
