Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about one-fifteen-thousandth as long as The Great Wall of China (total).
In other words, the length of The Great Wall of China (total) is 16,000 times 3,630.80 shaftments.
(长城, 長城, Chángchéng, a.k.a. 万里长城, 萬里長城, Wànlǐ Chángchéng) (a.k.a. "The long wall of 10,000 Li") (from Shanhaiguan through Lop Nur, China) (total length, all branches)
The Great Wall of China, including all branches and trenches, is 58,100,000 shaftments. Built and maintained in multiple sections over about eleven centuries, the Great Wall is currently suffering the effects of erosion, especially in the older sections made primarily out of mud.
It's about one-twenty-five-thousandth as long as The Diameter of Earth.
In other words, 3,630.80 shaftments is 0.0000433773960 times the length of The Diameter of Earth, and the length of The Diameter of Earth is 23,053.4820 times that amount.
(Equatorial)
The Earth — not a perfect sphere, but rather an oblate spheroid with bulged middle — has a diameter of approximately 83,702,579 shaftments at the Equator. The first complete view of Earth's diameter was in a photograph taken from a V-2 rocket launched in 1946 by the United States Army, which reached an altitude of 686,400 shaftments.
It's about 40,000 times as long as an Aspirin.
In other words, the length of an Aspirin is 0.0000250 times 3,630.80 shaftments.
(for up & up aspirin, 325mg, regular strength tablets) (a.k.a. acetylsalicylic acid, a.k.a. ASA)
A single aspirin tablet measures 0.092 shaftments in diameter. One of the most common medicines in the world and a foundation of worldwide health systems, an estimated 40,000 metric tons of aspirin are consumed each year.
It's about one-seventy-thousandth as long as The Circumfrence of Earth.
In other words, 3,630.80 shaftments is 0.0000138074540 times the length of The Circumfrence of Earth, and the length of The Circumfrence of Earth is 72,424.6480 times that amount.
(Equatorial)
The Earth — not a perfect sphere, but rather an oblate spheroid with bulged middle — has an Equatorial circumference of approximately 262,959,410 shaftments. The first airplane trip around the circumference of the Earth (with a few stops along the way), was completed in 1924 by the United States Army Air Service, and took 175 days.
It's about 350,000 times as long as a Strand of Spaghetti (thickness).
In other words, the length of a Strand of Spaghetti (thickness) is 0.00000300 times 3,630.80 shaftments.
(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 0.011 shaftments 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 450,000 times as long as a Grain of Sand.
In other words, 3,630.80 shaftments is 443,000 times the length of a Grain of Sand, and the length of a Grain of Sand is 0.000002260 times that amount.
(medium grain)
Composed mainly of quartz, mica, feldspar, or magnetite, a grain of sand measures an average of 0.0082 shaftments. In 2007, a team of seven in Myrtle Beach created the world's tallest sandcastle, which measured 99.10 shaftments in height.
It's about one-seven-hundred-thousandth as long as The Distance from Earth to the Moon.
In other words, 3,630.80 shaftments is 0.0000014393380 times the length of The Distance from Earth to the Moon, and the length of The Distance from Earth to the Moon is 694,763.80 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Luna) (median of semi-major axis, or apigee, and semi-minor axes, or perigee)
The orbit of the Moon around the Earth is elliptical, with an average distance of 2,522,549,000 shaftments from center-to-center. About 428.376 kg of moon rock have been cataloged on the Earth, from the American Apollo and Soviet Luna Programs, and from samples that have been extracted from meteorites.
