It's about one-and-one-fifth times as tall as The Great Pyramid of Giza
In other words, the height of The Great Pyramid of Giza is 0.830 times 0.1530 kilometers.
(a.k.a. Pyramid of Khufu, a.k.a. Pyramid of Cheops) (Cairo, Egypt) (estimated original height)
The Great Pyramid of Giza has an estimated original height (without loss due to erosion) of 0.130 kilometers. The Pyramid was the tallest structure in the world for almost 4,000 years — from its construction ca. 2551 BCE until it was overtaken by the Lincoln Cathedral in Lincoln, England, built in the year 1300.
It's about four-fifths as tall as The Space Needle
In other words, 0.1530 kilometers is 0.8320 times the height of The Space Needle, and the height of The Space Needle is 1.20 times that amount.
(Seattle, Washington) (to aircraft warning beacon at peak)
Built for a 1962 World's Fair, the Space Needle stands 0.1840 kilometers 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 one-and-two-fifths times as long as a Football field
In other words, 0.1530 kilometers is 1.394360 times the length of a Football field, and the length of a Football field is 0.7171750 times that amount.
(American) (total distance; per NFL regulation)
According to NFL specifications, an American football field should measure 0.1097280 kilometers from end to end. Because each team's goalpost is located at the far end of the scoring area (end zone), a ball on a scoring play may need to travel as many as 0.009144 kilometers farther when kicked into the scoring area than when run (rushed) or passed into it.
It's about one-and-a-half times as long as a Football (Soccer) Pitch
In other words, 0.1530 kilometers is 1.460 times the length of a Football (Soccer) Pitch, and the length of a Football (Soccer) Pitch is 0.6850 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Football Field, a.k.a. Soccer Field) (field length, a.k.a. touchline distance)
According to the Laws of the Game, a football pitch should measure between 0.1050 kilometers (when the Laws were originally, they used imperial measurements of 0.1050 kilometers, and later converted to the metric units used today). The goal markess were defined as part of the pitch by the original rules of the game in the late 16th century, but it was not until the mid 19th century that the crossbar and the net were added
It's about two-thirds as tall as The Golden Gate Bridge
In other words, 0.1530 kilometers is 0.6740 times the height of The Golden Gate Bridge, and the height of The Golden Gate Bridge is 1.480 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.
It's about one-and-three-fifths times as tall as Big Ben
In other words, the height of Big Ben is 0.630 times 0.1530 kilometers.
(officially the clock tower of Palace of Westminster, a.k.a. Houses of Parliament) (London, England)
The clock tower of the Palace of Westminster, which houses the bell known as "Big Ben," rises 0.096 kilometers. The tower has no elevator, and is therefore only accessible by climbing 334 steps to the top.
It's about one-and-two-thirds times as tall as The Statue of Liberty
In other words, 0.1530 kilometers is 1.6450 times the height of The Statue of Liberty, and the height of The Statue of Liberty is 0.60790 times that amount.
(a.k.a. "Liberty Enlightening the World," a.k.a. La Liberté Éclairant le Monde) (Liberty Island, New York City, New York) (pedestal base to torch peak)
The Statue of Liberty reaches 0.09299 kilometers including the pedestal. The statue was designed using an optical trick known as "forced perspective" to make the statue appear proportionally correct when viewed from its base and is, in actuality, disproportionately large at the top.
