Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about four-fifths as tall as Aconcagua.
In other words, 5,642,000,000 microns is 0.810410 times the height of Aconcagua, and the height of Aconcagua is 1.23390 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Cerro Aconcagua) (Mendoza, Argentina)
Aconcagua measures 6,961,900,000 microns height at its peak. Although there is no definitive evidence that members of the indigenous Inca civilization ever reached the peak the mountain, numerous archeological sites have been found on the slopes of the mountain, including a naturally-embalmed Incan mummy was discovered on a 5,200,000,000 microns high ridge.
It's about one-and-two-fifths times as long as The Hollywood Walk of Fame.
In other words, the length of The Hollywood Walk of Fame is 0.710 times 5,642,000,000 microns.
(Hollywood Boulevard and Vine Street, Hollywood, California) (approximate length)
The Hollywood Walk of Fame is approximately 3,900,000,000 microns. Gene Autry, most famous as the singer of "Back in the Saddle Again" and as the writer and singer of "Here Comes Santa Claus," is the only entertainer to have a star in every category — film, television, recording, radio, and theater. One of Autry's stars is also one of only two stars which have been stolen from the Walk and never recovered.
It's about one-and-two-fifths times as long as The Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
In other words, 5,642,000,000 microns is 1.402310 times the length of The Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and the length of The Indianapolis Motor Speedway is 0.7131090 times that amount.
(Speedway, Indiana) (rectangular oval course)
The rectangular oval course of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway is 4,023,360,000 microns. While famous for its automotive racing, the first motorsport held at the track was a series of motorcycle races in August, 1909 — a little less than two years before the inaugural Indianapolis 500 race was run.
It's about one-and-two-fifths times as long as Daytona International Speedway.
In other words, 5,642,000,000 microns is 1.402310 times the length of Daytona International Speedway, and the length of Daytona International Speedway is 0.7131090 times that amount.
(Daytona Beach, Florida) (tri-oval course)
The tri-oval course of the Daytona International Speedway, upon which the NASCAR Daytona 500 is run, is 4,023,360,000 microns in length. Although the tri-oval design is said to allow for greater visibility during the race, the real reason for the then-unique design was that plot available for construction of the track was only 350 acres and could not accommodate a traditional oval layout of appropriate length.
It's about two-thirds as tall as Mount Everest.
In other words, 5,642,000,000 microns is 0.6380 times the height of Mount Everest, and the height of Mount Everest is 1.570 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Mount Chomolungma, a.k.a. सगरमाथा, a.k.a. Chajamlungma, a.k.a. ཇོ་མོ་གླང་མ, a.k.a. 珠穆朗玛峰, a.k.a. Zhūmùlǎngmǎ Fēng) (Sagarmatha Zone, Nepal and Tibet, China) (to summit, excluding snow depth)
Mount Everest is 8,850,000,000 microns above sea level at its summit. The plate tectonics of the Indian subcontinent continuously alter the mountain's peak — raising it by 4,000 microns and shifting it to the northeast by 4,500 microns each year.
It's about three-fifths as tall as a Mauna Loa.
In other words, 5,642,000,000 microns is 0.61540 times the height of a Mauna Loa, and the height of a Mauna Loa is 1.6250 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 9,200,000,000 microns 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 half as tall as The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench).
In other words, 5,642,000,000 microns is 0.517520 times the height of The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench), and the height of The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench) is 1.93230 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 10,902,000,000 microns below sea level. There has been only one manned expedition to the bottom of Challenger Deep — a 1960 voyage that took 4 hours and 48 minutes to reach the bottom.
