Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about one-two-thousand-five-hundredth as tall as Maxwell Montes.
In other words, the height of Maxwell Montes is 2,700 times 0.002535 miles.
(Ishtar Terra, Venus)
Maxwell Montes rises to a total height of 6.80 miles. 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 3,500 times as long as a Grain of Sand.
In other words, 0.002535 miles is 3,260 times the length of a Grain of Sand, and the length of a Grain of Sand is 0.000307 times that amount.
(medium grain)
Composed mainly of quartz, mica, feldspar, or magnetite, a grain of sand measures an average of 0.0000007770 miles. In 2007, a team of seven in Myrtle Beach created the world's tallest sandcastle, which measured 0.00938 miles in height.
It's about one-six-thousand-five-hundredth as tall as Olympus Mons.
In other words, the height of Olympus Mons is 6,700 times 0.002535 miles.
(a.k.a. Mount Olympus) (Mars)
The tallest mountain in the solar system, Olympus Mons rises to approximately 17 miles. 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 one-twenty-thousandth as long as The Panama Canal.
In other words, the length of The Panama Canal is 22,000 times 0.002535 miles.
(Canal de Panamá) (Panama)
Connecting the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans across the Isthmus of Panama, the Canal measures 55 miles in length. Ships passing through the Canal are raised (and then lowered) 0.016 miles above sea level through the lock-and-dam system.
It's about one-twenty-five-thousandth as long as The English Channel.
In other words, the length of The English Channel is 26,200 times 0.002535 miles.
(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 66.50 miles, 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-thirty-thousandth as long as The 405.
In other words, 0.002535 miles is 0.0000350070 times the length of The 405, and the length of The 405 is 28,566 times that amount.
(a.k.a. I-405, Interstate 405, San DIego Freeway) (Southern California)
Running from Irvine to San Fernando, The 405 runs a total of 72.4150 miles. The 405 is the most heavily-trafficed freeway in the United States, with an average speed as low as 8 kph during rush hours.
It's about one-thirty-thousandth as long as Hadrian's Wall.
In other words, the length of Hadrian's Wall is 29,000 times 0.002535 miles.
(a.k.a. Roman Wall, a.k.a. The Wall, a.k.a. Vallo di Adriano, a.k.a. Vallum Aelium, a.k.a. Severus' Wall) (from North Tyneside, Tyne and Wear, England, United Kingdom to Cumbria, North West England, United Kingdom)
Hadrian's Wall, which crossed England form the North Sea to the Irish Sea during the time of Roman rule, measures 75 miles (about 79 Roman miles). Roman soldiers — at one time up to 10,000 of them — only occupied Great Britain for about 246 years after the wall was built, after which time the local Brits began to take residence the wall's garrisons.
