68 times the speed of light is about 2,500,000 times as fast as The Space Shuttle
In other words, it's 2,632,600 times the speed of The Space Shuttle, and the speed of The Space Shuttle is 0.00000037985 times that amount.
(Orbiter vehicle velocity)
The space shuttle orbits at a speed of 0.000025830 times the speed of light. During liftoff, the space shuttle accelerates to orbital speed in 8.5 minutes, consuming over 1.59 million kg (3.51 million lbs) of propellant in the process.
