129,000 kilometers is about 700,000 times as tall as The Space Needle
In other words, it's 701,000 times the height of The Space Needle, and the height of The Space Needle is 0.00000143 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).
