2,000,000,000 years is about 1,000,000,000,000 times as long as The First Transatlantic Flight (Alcock and Brown, 1919)
In other words, it's 1,080,000,000,000 times the length of The First Transatlantic Flight (Alcock and Brown, 1919), and the length of The First Transatlantic Flight (Alcock and Brown, 1919) is 0.0000000000009260 times that amount.
(John Alcock and Arthur Whitten Brown) (1919) (first non-stop flight)
In an effort to win a £10,000 prize from London's The Daily Mail, John Alcock and Arthur Brown completed a flight from St. John's, Newfoundland to Connemara, Ireland in 0.00185 years in June, 1919. In spite of their fame as aviators, Brown would never fly again after this trip and Alcock would lose his life during a flight to France less than 0.50 years later.
