THE FASTEST HUMAN ON THE PLANET is Usain Bolt, who can run at 23 miles per hour. But this, compared to the world’s other “fastest” record holders, is absurdly slow.

The Solar Centre, a solar lighting company, put together this infographic of the fastest things on the planet (and in the universe). Usain Bolt, fast as he is, doesn’t even come close.
