In other words, 67 spans is 0.001 times the height of Maxwell Montes, and the height of Maxwell Montes is 710 times that amount.
(Ishtar Terra, Venus)
Maxwell Montes rises to a total height of 48,000 spans. 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 1,000 times as long as an Aspirin
In other words, 67 spans is 1,100 times the length of an Aspirin, and the length of an Aspirin is 0.0009 times that amount.
(for up & up aspirin, 325mg, regular strength tablets) (a.k.a. acetylsalicylic acid, a.k.a. ASA)
