# Speed and Distance

## This text is styled by the default component styles for text

When a car measures its speed, it does it by counting how many times its wheels rotate and sending that information to its speedometer. When an airplane measures its speed, it uses a pitot tube to detect its movement through the air.

But something in space is moving through a vacuum, and there is nothing material against which it can measure its speed. So it has to use other techniques.

One way is to use an inertial 33 system. Accelerometers and gyroscopes measure every turn and acceleration that affects the spacecraft and a computer uses uses this information to calculate the current velocity.
