It's about 150 times as tall as The Shanghai World Financial Center
In other words, 71 kilometers is 144 times the height of The Shanghai World Financial Center, and the height of The Shanghai World Financial Center is 0.00694 times that amount.
(上海环球金融中 上海環球金融中心, Shànghǎi huánqiú jīnróng zhōngxīn) (a.k.a. SWFC) (Shanghai, China) (to spire)
The Shanghai World Financial Center is 0.4920 kilometers tall to its roof. It is home to both the world's highest hotel (on its 79th through 93rd floors) and the world's tallest observation deck (on its 100th floor, approximately 0.4740 kilometers above ground).

(a.k.a. Menara Berkembar Petronas, a.k.a. Petronas Towers) (Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia) (to spire)
Each of the Petronas Towers stands 0.45190 kilometers to their spires. Holding the record as the tallest buildings in the world from 1998 to 2004, the towers continue to hold the record for the deepest foundation barrettes — up to 0.1150 kilometers deep.
It's about one-two-hundredth as long as The Diameter of Earth
In other words, 71 kilometers is 0.0055658889 times the length of The Diameter of Earth, and the length of The Diameter of Earth is 179.665820 times that amount.
(Equatorial)
The Earth — not a perfect sphere, but rather an oblate spheroid with bulged middle — has a diameter of approximately 12,756.2730 kilometers 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 104.607360 kilometers.
It's about 200 times as tall as The Empire State Building
In other words, 71 kilometers is 186.350 times the height of The Empire State Building, and the height of The Empire State Building is 0.0053662 times that amount.
(New York City, New York) (to top of building)
The Empire State Building stands 0.381010 kilometers to its architectural peak. The spire emerging from the top of the building was originally intended to be a mooring mast for blimps whose passengers could disembark onto a landing platform on the 102nd floor of the building.
It's about 200 times as tall as The Eiffel Tower
In other words, 71 kilometers is 219 times the height of The Eiffel Tower, and the height of The Eiffel Tower is 0.00457 times that amount.
(a.k.a. La Tour Eiffel) (Paris, France) (to flagpole peak)
The Eiffel Tower stands 0.3240 kilometers tall, including its flagpole. The Tower is the largest structure in Paris as most other buildings are governed by a zoning restriction limiting them to a height of 0.037 kilometers or less.
It's about 250 times as long as The QE2
In other words, 71 kilometers is 241 times the length of The QE2, and the length of The QE2 is 0.00415 times that amount.
(a.k.a. RMS Queen Elizabeth 2)
The QE2 has a total length of 0.2940 kilometers. During its voyaging lifetime from 1969 through 2008, it travelled more than 9.6 million km, the furthest cumulative distance by any ship in modern history.
It's about 300 times as tall as The Golden Gate Bridge
In other words, 71 kilometers is 313 times the height of The Golden Gate Bridge, and the height of The Golden Gate Bridge is 0.00319 times that amount.
(San Francisco, California and Marin County, California) (height above water)
The height of each tower of Golden Gate Bridge is 0.2270 kilometers 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.
