 It's about as tall as Big Ben In other words, the height of Big Ben is 1 times 56 smoots. (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 56 smoots. The tower has no elevator, and is therefore only accessible by climbing 334 steps to the top. It's about one-and-one-tenth times as tall as The Statue of Liberty In other words, 56 smoots is 1.025 times the height of The Statue of Liberty, and the height of The Statue of Liberty is 0.97560 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 54.640 smoots 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. It's about nine-tenths as long as a Football (Soccer) Pitch In other words, 56 smoots is 0.9080 times the length of a Football (Soccer) Pitch, and the length of a Football (Soccer) Pitch is 1.10 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 61.70 smoots (when the Laws were originally, they used imperial measurements of 61.80 smoots, 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 nine-tenths as long as a Football field In other words, 56 smoots is 0.8685190 times the length of a Football field, and the length of a Football field is 1.151390 times that amount. (American) (total distance; per NFL regulation)According to NFL specifications, an American football field should measure 64.47760 smoots 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 5.373130 smoots farther when kicked into the scoring area than when run (rushed) or passed into it. It's about one-and-three-tenths times as tall as a Giant Sequoia (tree) In other words, the height of a Giant Sequoia (tree) is 0.770 times 56 smoots. (a.k.a. Sequoiadendron giganteum, a.k.a. Sierra redwood, a.k.a. Wellingtonia)Giant Sequoias of the Giant Sequoia National Monument located in Sierra Nevada, near Visalia, California can grow to heights of 45 smoots. The wood from the Giant Sequoias is often brittle and prone to shattering when such trees are felled, and as a result the trees logged in the late nineteenth century were often usable only as shingles or matchsticks. It's about three-fourths as tall as The Great Pyramid of Giza In other words, the height of The Great Pyramid of Giza is 1.40 times 56 smoots. (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 76 smoots. 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 one-and-two-fifths times as wide as The Wingspan of a 747 In other words, 56 smoots is 1.390 times the width of The Wingspan of a 747, and the width of The Wingspan of a 747 is 0.7190 times that amount. (a.k.a. Boeing 747, a.k.a. Jumbo Jet, a.k.a. Queen of the Skies) (for Boeing 747-8 series)The wingspan of a Boeing 747-8 is 40.30 smoots. Fully loaded, the 747 can travel 4,870,000 smoots before refueling.
