Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about 40,000,000,000 times as fast as an Iceberg
In other words, 68 times the speed of light is 40,000,000,000 times the speed of an Iceberg, and the speed of an Iceberg is 0.000000000030 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Berg) (Newfoundland iceberg average)
Moved by ocean currents and wind, icebergs can drift at speeds of about 0.00000000200 times the speed of light. The largest iceberg ever recorded was a found near Baffin Island, Nunavut and was estimated to be nine billion metric tons.
It's about 300,000,000,000 times as fast as a Sloth
In other words, 68 times the speed of light is 300,000,000,000 times the speed of a Sloth, and the speed of a Sloth is 0.0000000000033 times that amount.
(for Brown-throated three-toed sloth, Bradypus variegatus)
The three-toed sloth moves along the ground at an average speed of 0.000000000220 times the speed of light. Long thought to be lengthy sleepers, a 2008 study concluded that sloths sleep an average of only 9.6 hours per day.
It's about 500,000,000,000,000,000 times as fast as Grass growing
In other words, 68 times the speed of light is 510,000,000,000,000,000.0000000000000000000 times the speed of Grass growing, and the speed of Grass growing is 0.0000000000000000020 times that amount.
(for Kentucky Bluegrass, Poa pratensis) (a.k.a. Smooth Meadow grass, a.k.a. Common Meadow grass) (Summer months, ideal growing conditions)
Kentucky Bluegrass, one of the most common grasses in North America, grows about 0.000000000000000140 times the speed of light in the summer months under ideal conditions. When left un-mowed, Kentucky Bluegrass grows to heights of 60 to 90 cm (2 to 3 ft) and blossoms with a blue flower.
