It's about 45 times as big as Sydney Harbour.
In other words, 25,000,000,000 cubic meters is 44.50 times the size of Sydney Harbour, and the size of Sydney Harbour is 0.0225 times that amount.
(formally Port Jackson, a.k.a. Sydney Harbor) (Sydney, New South Wales, Australia) (total estuary water volume at high tide)
Lending the term "sydharb" or "sydarb" to comparable quantities of water, Sydney Harbor contains approximately 562,000,000 cubic meters of water. Snapper Island, a onetime naval facility loocated in the Harbour, was transformed by the dredging efforts of the Australian Navy from a 2,360 sq. m (25,400 sq. ft) outcropping to a 16,500 sq. m (178,000 sq. ft) island shaped roughly in the outline of a boat.
It's about one-one-hundred-fiftieth as big as an Halley's Comet.
In other words, the size of an Halley's Comet is 160 times 25,000,000,000 cubic meters.
(Comet Halley, officially "1P/Halley") (volume calculated based on 2005 dimensions)
Halley's Comet, the famous comet visible to observers on Earth approximately every 76 years, has a peanut- or potato-shaped nucleus made of rock, dust, ice, and various frozen gasses. The nucleus measures approximately 15 km by 8 km by 8 km, which yields a calculated volume of 4,000,000,000,000 cubic meters. The coma of the Comet — the trail of sublimated gasses that give the Comet its visibility — may be up to 100,000 km in length.
It's about one-one-hundred-fiftieth as big as The Grand Canyon.
In other words, the size of The Grand Canyon is 167 times 25,000,000,000 cubic meters.
(Coconino County and Mohave Counties, Arizona, near Fredonia and Grand Canyon, Arizona)
A dynamic and continuously changing landscape, the Grand Canyon has an approximate volume of 4,170,000,000,000 (4.17 trillion) cu. m. The strata of the rock visible in the Canyon's walls display nearly 2 billion years of geological history.
It's about 10,000 times as big as The Great Pyramid of Giza.
In other words, 25,000,000,000 cubic meters is 10,298.180 times the size of The Great Pyramid of Giza, and the size of The Great Pyramid of Giza is 0.000097104540 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Pyramid of Khufu, a.k.a. Pyramid of Cheops) (Cairo, Egypt) (including internal hillock)
The Great Pyramid of Giza has an estimated volume of 2,427,614 cu. m including its internal hillock. The 2,300,000 stones used in the construction of the pyramid weighed an average 2.27 metric tons (2.06 short tons) and were quarried at distances of up to 805 km (500 mi) away.
It's about 15,000 times as big as The Melbourne Cricket Ground.
In other words, the size of The Melbourne Cricket Ground is 0.0000670 times 25,000,000,000 cubic meters.
(a.k.a. MCG, a.k.a. "The G") (Yarra Park, melbourne, Victoria, Australia) (internal volume)
The MCG has an internal volume of approximately 1,700,000 cu. m. The first cricket game held on the site of the MCG was in 1853 when the Melbourne Cricket Club was granted permission to a roughly 0.04 sq. km (10-acre) area to be used "for cricket and no other purpose."
It's about 20,000 times as big as The Houston Astrodome.
In other words, 25,000,000,000 cubic meters is 21,000 times the size of The Houston Astrodome, and the size of The Houston Astrodome is 0.0000480 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Reliant Astrodome, a.k.a. Astrodome, a.k.a. Harris County Domed Stadium) (Houston, Texas)
The Reliant Astrodome measures 1,200,000 cu. m in total volume. Until its renovation in 1988, Roy "The Judge" Hofheinz, the franchise owner of the Houston Colt .45s (later the Houston Astros) and one of the Astrodome's developers, had a private 966 sq. m (10,400 sq. ft) apartment in the facility.
It's about one-ninety-five-thousandth as big as The Gulf of Mexico.
In other words, 25,000,000,000 cubic meters is 0.000010270 times the size of The Gulf of Mexico, and the size of The Gulf of Mexico is 97,370 times that amount.
(water volume)
The Gulf of Mexico contains 2,434,000,000,000,000.00000000000000000000 cubic meters of water. Every second, the Mississippi River empties 12,000 cubic meters of water into the Gulf.
