How fast does Halley's Comet travel?

Answer

Halley's comet is not like any other typical comet, typical comets will circle around once and then dissipate. Halley's comet has been said to circle around the solar system 20,000 miles per hour. Comets do not ever come into the the Earth's atmosphere unless they are in line to hit Earth. If a comet were ever to hit Earth it could be catastrophic, not only for the area in which it hit, but the entire planet.
