Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about one-three-hundredth as tall as The Singapore Flyer (Ferris wheel).
In other words, 534 milimeters is 0.00324 times the height of The Singapore Flyer (Ferris wheel), and the height of The Singapore Flyer (Ferris wheel) is 309 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 165,000 milimeters. Based on recommendations from Feng Shui masters, the wheel was re-engineered to spin in the opposite direction five months after it began operating.
It's about 300 times as long as a Strand of Spaghetti (thickness).
In other words, 534 milimeters is 310 times the length of a Strand of Spaghetti (thickness), and the length of a Strand of Spaghetti (thickness) is 0.0032 times that amount.
(average; restaurant and supermarket applications) (based on FMA Omcan Italian Made TR50 Counter Top Pasta Machine Extruder 13317)
An average strand of restaurant-grade spaghetti measures 1.7 mm in thickness. In 2010, a California Buca di Beppo set a world record by preparing a 13,780-lb bowl of spaghetti, served in a swimming pool.
It's about one-three-hundredth as tall as The Washington Monument.
In other words, 534 milimeters is 0.0031544 times the height of The Washington Monument, and the height of The Washington Monument is 317.02 times that amount.
(Washington, D.C.)
The Washington Monument measures 169,290 milimeters 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 one-three-hundred-fiftieth as tall as The Space Needle.
In other words, the height of The Space Needle is 345 times 534 milimeters.
(Seattle, Washington) (to aircraft warning beacon at peak)
Built for a 1962 World's Fair, the Space Needle stands 184,000 milimeters 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 one-four-hundred-fiftieth as tall as The Golden Gate Bridge.
In other words, 534 milimeters is 0.00235 times the height of The Golden Gate Bridge, and the height of The Golden Gate Bridge is 426 times that amount.
(San Francisco, California and Marin County, California) (height above water)
The height of each tower of Golden Gate Bridge is 227,000 milimeters 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 450 times as long as a Grain of Sand.
In other words, 534 milimeters is 427 times the length of a Grain of Sand, and the length of a Grain of Sand is 0.00234 times that amount.
(medium grain)
Composed mainly of quartz, mica, feldspar, or magnetite, a grain of sand measures an average of 1.25 mm. In 2007, a team of seven in Myrtle Beach created the world's tallest sandcastle, which measured 15,100 milimeters in height.
It's about one-five-hundred-fiftieth as long as The QE2.
In other words, 534 milimeters is 0.00182 times the length of The QE2, and the length of The QE2 is 549 times that amount.
(a.k.a. RMS Queen Elizabeth 2) The QE2 has a total length of 294,000 milimeters. During its voyaging lifetime from 1969 through 2008, it travelled more than 9,600,000,000,000 milimeters, the furthest cumulative distance by any ship in modern history.
