The highest recorded sneeze speed is 102.5 miles per hour, states the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago. For comparison, the wind speed observed in a Category 2 hurricane is between 96 and 110 miles per hour, according to the Saffir-Simpson scale .
An episode of the Discovery Channel show "MythBusters" evaluated whether or not a human sneeze could reach 100 miles per hour. The hosts conducted the experiments using a high-speed camera and found that the fastest sneeze that they could produce reached only 39 miles per hour. The second-fastest sneeze of the experiment was 35 miles per hour.
