If you could stop reltive to the milkyway galaxe you would be going very fast 1,332,000. But rember you are going that fast right now. Hummm isent time sopos to slow down as you approch the speed of light all.
How is it the galaxe is moving at 1,332,000 with out showing any time effects .HUMM theres food for thought.
