World's fastest man-made object moving at 692,000 km/h

Do you know what the world’s fastest man-made object is?

Ordinary humans run at an average speed of 24 km/h (14.9 mph). But everyone knows Usain Bolt is the world’s fastest man.

Sprint champion Bolt can reach 44.72 km/h (27.78 mph) – he’s not quite as quick as the fastest animal on Earth, though.

The cheetah has a top speed of 130 km/h – or 80.7 mph – probably why GTA named their infamous car that (it appeared in the recent GTA 6 trailer drop).

The cheetah’s nowhere near as rapid as the Rimac Nevera – the fastest production car in the world.

Last year, the $2.4m car set a new top speed record for EVs, hitting 415 km/h (258 mph).

There are plenty of other things faster than the Nevera – but what’s the fastest?

Here’s a clue – it travels at 692,000 km/h (429,988 mph).
