    Do we age slower on Earth than if in space or outside the galaxy?

    Our solar system rotates around the center of the Milky Way at about 900000 km/hr. The Earth moves around the Sun at around 107,300 km/h. The Earth also rotates on its axis at approximately 1670 km/hr (at the equator).

    So does that mean if we were out of orbit of earth, outside the solar system, or outside of our galaxy we would age quite a bit faster? Though I don't see how it would matter since we would do everything faster, correct?
