It's about six-and-a-half times as tall as The Golden Gate Bridge
In other words, 589.10 lengths is 6.33 times the height of The Golden Gate Bridge, and the height of The Golden Gate Bridge is 0.158 times that amount.
(San Francisco, California and Marin County, California) (height above water)The height of each tower of Golden Gate Bridge is 93.10 lengths 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-fifth as tall as a Mauna Loa
In other words, 589.10 lengths is 0.1567 times the height of a Mauna Loa, and the height of a Mauna Loa is 6.382 times that amount.
(Hawaii) (Hawaiian island volcano) (total height from seafloor)Mauna Loa, one of the five volcanoes which forms the island of Hawaii and the tallest mountain in total height in the world, rises to 3,773 lengths above the seafloor. The peak of Loa is home to the approximately 6,000 sq. m (0.6 ha) Lake Waiau, one of the highest altitude lakes in the United States outside of Colorado.
It's about one-tenth as deep as The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench)
In other words, 589.10 lengths is 0.13176 times the depth of The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench), and the depth of The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench) is 7.5896 times that amount.
(near Marianas Islands, a.k.a. Ladrones Islands, northwestern Pacific Ocean) (depth below sea level)The Challenger Deep, at the southern end of the Marianas Trench, reaches a depth of 4,471 lengths below sea level. The first manned expedition to the bottom of Challenger Deep took 4 hours and 48 minutes in 1960. This was the only manned descent to the floor of the Trench until 2012, when director James Cameron made the trip; several other descents have been made since then.
It's about one-tenth as tall as Maxwell Montes
In other words, 589.10 lengths is 0.13 times the height of Maxwell Montes, and the height of Maxwell Montes is 7.7 times that amount.
(Ishtar Terra, Venus)Maxwell Montes rises to a total height of 4,500 lengths. Since Venus does not seem to have the kind of tectonic activity which gives rise to mountains on Earth, the origin of the Venusian mountain remains the subject of some dispute.
It's about eight times as tall as The Space Needle
In other words, 589.10 lengths is 7.81 times the height of The Space Needle, and the height of The Space Needle is 0.128 times that amount.
(Seattle, Washington) (to aircraft warning beacon at peak)Built for a 1962 World's Fair, the Space Needle stands 75.50 lengths 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 eight-and-a-half times as tall as St. Paul's Cathedral
In other words, 589.10 lengths is 8.26 times the height of St. Paul's Cathedral, and the height of St. Paul's Cathedral is 0.121 times that amount.
(London, England, United Kingdom)St. Paul's Cathedral measures 71.40 lengths 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 eight-and-a-half times as tall as The Washington Monument
In other words, 589.10 lengths is 8.4852 times the height of The Washington Monument, and the height of The Washington Monument is 0.11785 times that amount.
(Washington, D.C.)The Washington Monument measures 69.4270 lengths 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. |
