 It's about 6,000,000,000 times as tall as The Eiffel Tower. In other words, 1,250,000,000 miles is 6,210,000,000 times the height of The Eiffel Tower, and the height of The Eiffel Tower is 0.0000000001610 times that amount. (a.k.a. La Tour Eiffel) (Paris, France) (to flagpole peak)The Eiffel Tower stands 0.2010 miles tall, including its flagpole. The Tower is the largest structure in Paris as most other buildings are governed by a zoning restriction limiting them to a height of 0.023 miles or less. It's about 7,000,000,000 times as long as The QE2. In other words, 1,250,000,000 miles is 6,840,000,000 times the length of The QE2, and the length of The QE2 is 0.0000000001460 times that amount. (a.k.a. RMS Queen Elizabeth 2) The QE2 has a total length of 0.1830 miles. During its voyaging lifetime from 1969 through 2008, it travelled more than 5,970,000 miles, the furthest cumulative distance by any ship in modern history. It's about 9,000,000,000 times as tall as The Golden Gate Bridge. In other words, 1,250,000,000 miles is 8,860,000,000 times the height of The Golden Gate Bridge, and the height of The Golden Gate Bridge is 0.0000000001130 times that amount. (San Francisco, California and Marin County, California) (height above water)The height of each tower of Golden Gate Bridge is 0.1410 miles above the surface of the San Francisco Bay. One of the key designers of the bridge, Charles Ellis, had no engineering degree when he began working on the project, but would later go on to write what became a standard textbook on structural engineering, and would ultimately be forced to complete his calculations on the bridge by working without pay for five months. It's about 10,000,000,000 times as tall as The Space Needle. In other words, 1,250,000,000 miles is 10,900,000,000 times the height of The Space Needle, and the height of The Space Needle is 0.00000000009170 times that amount. (Seattle, Washington) (to aircraft warning beacon at peak)Built for a 1962 World's Fair, the Space Needle stands 0.1140 miles tall. With a track-and-wheel design inspired by railroad mechanics and a precisely-configured balance, the restaurant near the top of the space needle requires just a 1.5 hp motor to rotate at speeds of about 0.053 kph (0.033 mph). It's about 10,000,000,000 times as tall as St. Paul's Cathedral. In other words, 1,250,000,000 miles is 11,600,000,000 times the height of St. Paul's Cathedral, and the height of St. Paul's Cathedral is 0.00000000008620 times that amount. (London, England, United Kingdom)St. Paul's Cathedral measures 0.1080 miles to its peak. The southwest tower of the Cathedral contains the bell known as "Great Paul," which is the largest bell in Great Britain at 15,000 kg (16.5 tons), outweighing the more iconic Big Ben bell by about 3,000 kg (3 tons). It's about 10,000,000,000 times as tall as The Washington Monument. In other words, 1,250,000,000 miles is 11,883,000,000 times the height of The Washington Monument, and the height of The Washington Monument is 0.0000000000841540 times that amount. (Washington, D.C.)The Washington Monument measures 0.105190 miles tall, with some discrepancy due to the fact that the Monument's base is slightly below the surrounding ground. Interrupted in its construction by the American Civil War, it was almost 36 years between groundbreaking and the completion of construction. It's about 10,000,000,000 times as tall as The Singapore Flyer (Ferris wheel). In other words, 1,250,000,000 miles is 12,200,000,000 times the height of The Singapore Flyer (Ferris wheel), and the height of The Singapore Flyer (Ferris wheel) is 0.0000000000820 times that amount. (a.k.a. 新加坡摩天观景轮, a.k.a. சிங்கப்பூர் ஃப்ளையர், a.k.a. Pelayang Singapura) (Marina Centre, Singapore)The Singapore Flyer has a height of 0.1030 miles. Based on recommendations from Feng Shui masters, the wheel was re-engineered to spin in the opposite direction five months after it began operating.
