Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about ten times as long as The English Channel.
In other words, 1,067 kilometers is 9.970 times the length of The English Channel, and the length of The English Channel is 0.10 times that amount.
(average width between Isle of Ushant and The Walde Lighthouse) (La Manche, Ärmelkanal, Mor Breizh, Mor Bretannek) (a.k.a. The Channel)
The English Channel measures between 180 km to 34 km, narrowing as it flows northeast. The world speed record for a Channel crossing by swimmer was set by Australian Trent Grimsey in 2012, with a time of 6 hours, 55 minutes.
It's about one-tenth as long as The Diameter of Earth.
In other words, 1,067 kilometers is 0.08364512 times the length of The Diameter of Earth, and the length of The Diameter of Earth is 11.955270 times that amount.
(Equatorial)
The Earth — not a perfect sphere, but rather an oblate spheroid with bulged middle — has a diameter of approximately 12,756.2730 kilometers at the Equator. The first complete view of Earth's diameter was in a photograph taken from a V-2 rocket launched in 1946 by the United States Army, which reached an altitude of 104.607360 kilometers.
It's about twelve times as long as The Panama Canal.
In other words, the length of The Panama Canal is 0.083 times 1,067 kilometers.
(Canal de Panamá) (Panama)
Connecting the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans across the Isthmus of Panama, the Canal measures 88 kilometers in length. Ships passing through the Canal are raised (and then lowered) 0.026 kilometers above sea level through the lock-and-dam system.
It's about one-fortieth as long as The Circumfrence of Earth.
In other words, 1,067 kilometers is 0.026625069 times the length of The Circumfrence of Earth, and the length of The Circumfrence of Earth is 37.5585880 times that amount.
(Equatorial)
The Earth — not a perfect sphere, but rather an oblate spheroid with bulged middle — has an Equatorial circumference of approximately 40,075.014 kilometers. The first airplane trip around the circumference of the Earth (with a few stops along the way), was completed in 1924 by the United States Army Air Service, and took 175 days.
It's about 40 times as tall as Olympus Mons.
In other words, the height of Olympus Mons is 0.025 times 1,067 kilometers.
(a.k.a. Mount Olympus) (Mars)
The tallest mountain in the solar system, Olympus Mons rises to approximately 27 km. The mountain has been known to astronomers since the nineteenth century because it is tall enough to rise above Mars' frequent dust storms.
It's about 95 times as tall as Maxwell Montes.
In other words, the height of Maxwell Montes is 0.01 times 1,067 kilometers.
(Ishtar Terra, Venus)
Maxwell Montes rises to a total height of 11 km. Since Venus does not seem to have the kind of tectonic activity which gives rise to mountains on Earth, the origin of the Venusian mountain remains the subject of some dispute.
It's about 100 times as tall as The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench).
In other words, 1,067 kilometers is 97.8720 times the height of The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench), and the height of The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench) is 0.010217 times that amount.
(near Marianas Islands, a.k.a. Ladrones Islands, northwestern Pacific Ocean) (depth below sea level)
The Challenger Deep, at the southern end of the Marianas Trench, reaches a depth of 10.902 km below sea level. There has been only one manned expedition to the bottom of Challenger Deep — a 1960 voyage that took 4 hours and 48 minutes to reach the bottom.
