 It's about 25,000 times as tall as The Eiffel Tower In other words, 8,290,000,000 milimeters is 25,600 times the height of The Eiffel Tower, and the height of The Eiffel Tower is 0.00003910 times that amount. (a.k.a. La Tour Eiffel) (Paris, France) (to flagpole peak)The Eiffel Tower stands 324,000 milimeters 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 37,000 milimeters or less. It's about 30,000 times as long as The QE2 In other words, 8,290,000,000 milimeters is 28,200 times the length of The QE2, and the length of The QE2 is 0.00003550 times that amount. (a.k.a. RMS Queen Elizabeth 2)The QE2 has a total length of 294,000 milimeters. During its voyaging lifetime from 1969 through 2008, it travelled more than 9,600,000,000,000 milimeters, the furthest cumulative distance by any ship in modern history. It's about 35,000 times as tall as The Golden Gate Bridge In other words, 8,290,000,000 milimeters is 36,500 times the height of The Golden Gate Bridge, and the height of The Golden Gate Bridge is 0.00002740 times that amount. (San Francisco, California and Marin County, California) (height above water)The height of each tower of Golden Gate Bridge is 227,000 milimeters 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. It's about 45,000 times as tall as The Space Needle In other words, 8,290,000,000 milimeters is 45,100 times the height of The Space Needle, and the height of The Space Needle is 0.00002220 times that amount. (Seattle, Washington) (to aircraft warning beacon at peak)Built for a 1962 World's Fair, the Space Needle stands 184,000 milimeters tall. With a track-and-wheel design inspired by railroad mechanics and a precisely-configured balance, the restaurant near the top of the space needle requires just a 1.5 hp motor to rotate at speeds of about 0.053 kph (0.033 mph). It's about 50,000 times as tall as St. Paul's Cathedral In other words, 8,290,000,000 milimeters is 47,600 times the height of St. Paul's Cathedral, and the height of St. Paul's Cathedral is 0.0000210 times that amount. (London, England, United Kingdom)St. Paul's Cathedral measures 174,000 milimeters to its peak. The southwest tower of the Cathedral contains the bell known as "Great Paul," which is the largest bell in Great Britain at 15,000 kg (16.5 tons), outweighing the more iconic Big Ben bell by about 3,000 kg (3 tons). It's about 50,000 times as tall as The Washington Monument In other words, 8,290,000,000 milimeters is 48,969 times the height of The Washington Monument, and the height of The Washington Monument is 0.0000204210 times that amount. (Washington, D.C.)The Washington Monument measures 169,290 milimeters tall, with some discrepancy due to the fact that the Monument's base is slightly below the surrounding ground. Interrupted in its construction by the American Civil War, it was almost 36 years between groundbreaking and the completion of construction. It's about 50,000 times as tall as The Singapore Flyer (Ferris wheel) In other words, 8,290,000,000 milimeters is 50,200 times the height of The Singapore Flyer (Ferris wheel), and the height of The Singapore Flyer (Ferris wheel) is 0.00001990 times that amount. (a.k.a. 新加坡摩天观景轮, a.k.a. சிங்கப்பூர் ஃப்ளையர், a.k.a. Pelayang Singapura) (Marina Centre, Singapore)The Singapore Flyer has a height of 165,000 milimeters. Based on recommendations from Feng Shui masters, the wheel was re-engineered to spin in the opposite direction five months after it began operating.
