4.4×10^26 m – radius of the observable universe

7×10^8 m – radius of the Sun

7.1×10^7 m – radius of Jupiter

6.4×10^6 m – radius of the Earth

10^2 m – a good distance to run in 10s

1m – fenceposts and other human-sized things

1.7×10^-1 m – a good length for a kitchen knife

1×10^-3 m – a mustard seed

1×10^-4 m – thickness of a human hair

3.63×10^-6 m – pixel-pitch of the sensor that took this photo

4.4×10^-7 m – diameter of a Megavirus

1.62×10^-35 m – Planck length, shorter distances than which do not make sense even to string theorists

1.37×10^-35 N – the force a human’s gravity exerts on a kilogram mass at the other side of the universe

In an infinite universe, the one thing sentient life cannot afford to have is a sense of proportion. – DNA.
