It's about 85,000,000,000,000 times as heavy as a Poppy Seed.
In other words, the weight of a Poppy Seed is 0.0000000000000120 times 25,000 tonnes.
(Papaver somniferum)
Fifty percent oil by weight, a poppy seed weighs approximately 0.000000000300 tonnes. The true pigment of a poppy seed is brown in color, while the characteristic bluish color is an optical illusion caused by a layer of calcium oxalate crystals refracting light rays.
It's about 450,000,000,000,000 times as heavy as a Grain of Salt.
In other words, 25,000 tonnes is 427,000,000,000,000.000000000000000000 times the weight of a Grain of Salt, and the weight of a Grain of Salt is 0.000000000000002340 times that amount.
The mass of a grain of salt is approximately 0.00000000005850 tonnes. Salt consumption varies widely by country; the people of the United States consume a combined total of about 2,728.90 tonnes of salt each year.
It's about 0.00000000000000000000002 times as heavy as The Sun.
In other words, 25,000 tonnes is 0.0000000000000000000000130 times the weight of The Sun, and the weight of The Sun is 76,999,999,999,999,997,902,848.0000000000000000000000000 times that amount.
The sun has a mass of 2,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (2 octillion) tonnes which represents 99.9% of the solar system's total mass. 98.7% of the sun's mass consists of hydrogen and helium — respectively the lightest and second-lightest elements in the universe.
It's about 0.000000000000000004 times as heavy as The Earth.
In other words, 25,000 tonnes is 0.00000000000000000418510 times the weight of The Earth, and the weight of The Earth is 238,940,000,000,000,000.00000000000000000000000 times that amount.
The mass of the planet Earth is 5,973,600,000,000,000,000,000 (5.973 sextillion) tonnes. The element iron makes up about 32% of that mass, or 1,917,500,000,000,000,000,000 (1.917 sextillion) tonnes.
