 It's about one-three-thousandth as long as The Distance from Earth to the Moon. In other words, 74.250 nautical miles is 0.000357695 times the length of The Distance from Earth to the Moon, and the length of The Distance from Earth to the Moon is 2,795.6780 times that amount. (a.k.a. Luna) (median of semi-major axis, or apigee, and semi-minor axes, or perigee) The orbit of the Moon around the Earth is elliptical, with an average distance of 207,579.10 nautical miles from center-to-center. About 428.376 kg of moon rock have been cataloged on the Earth, from the American Apollo and Soviet Luna Programs, and from samples that have been extracted from meteorites. It's about one-three-hundredth as long as The Circumfrence of Earth. In other words, 74.250 nautical miles is 0.00343134 times the length of The Circumfrence of Earth, and the length of The Circumfrence of Earth is 291.431340 times that amount. (Equatorial)The Earth — not a perfect sphere, but rather an oblate spheroid with bulged middle — has an Equatorial circumference of approximately 21,638.7760 nautical miles. The first airplane trip around the circumference of the Earth (with a few stops along the way), was completed in 1924 by the United States Army Air Service, and took 175 days. It's about one-ninety-fifth as long as The Diameter of Earth. In other words, 74.250 nautical miles is 0.010779873 times the length of The Diameter of Earth, and the length of The Diameter of Earth is 92.7654710 times that amount. (Equatorial)The Earth Ã¢â‚¬â€ not a perfect sphere, but rather an oblate spheroid with bulged middle Ã¢â‚¬â€ has a diameter of approximately 6,887.83640 nautical miles at the Equator. The first complete view of Earth's diameter was in a photograph taken from a V-2 rocket launched in 1946 by the United States Army, which reached an altitude of 56.4834560 nautical miles. It's about one-sixty-fifth as long as The Great Wall of China (total). In other words, the length of The Great Wall of China (total) is 64.50 times 74.250 nautical miles. (长城, 長城, Chángchéng, a.k.a. 万里长城, 萬里長城, Wànlǐ Chángchéng) (a.k.a. "The long wall of 10,000 Li") (from Shanhaiguan through Lop Nur, China) (total length, all branches)The Great Wall of China, including all branches and trenches, is 4,780 nautical miles. Built and maintained in multiple sections over about eleven centuries, the Great Wall is currently suffering the effects of erosion, especially in the older sections made primarily out of mud. It's about one-forty-fifth as long as The Amazon River. In other words, 74.250 nautical miles is 0.02136 times the length of The Amazon River, and the length of The Amazon River is 46.820 times that amount. (from Nevado Mismi, Arequipa, Peru through near Marajó, Brazil) (approximate distance)The Amazon River has an approximate distance of 3,476 nautical miles. Although by most measures it is the largest and one of the most significant rivers in the world, the region surrounding the Amazon is mostly sparsely populated and the river itself has no bridges across it at any point. It's about one-forty-fifth as long as The Great Wall of China (wall only). In other words, 74.250 nautical miles is 0.02197 times the length of The Great Wall of China (wall only), and the length of The Great Wall of China (wall only) is 45.520 times that amount. (长城, 長城, Chángchéng, a.k.a. 万里长城, 萬里長城, Wànlǐ Chángchéng) (a.k.a. "The long wall of 10,000 Li") (from Shanhaiguan through Lop Nur, China) (wall segments only)The Great Wall of China has total wall segment length of 3.380 nautical miles. Built and maintained in multiple sections over about eleven centuries, the Great Wall is currently suffering the effects of erosion, especially in the older sections made primarily out of mud. It's about one-thirty-fifth as long as I-80. In other words, 74.250 nautical miles is 0.0296486 times the length of I-80, and the length of I-80 is 33.72840 times that amount. (a.k.a. Interstate 80, a.k.a. Keystone Shortway) (net length) Interstate 80, crosses the continent of North America from Teaneck, New Jersey to San Francisco, California and covers a total length of 2,504.340 nautical miles. A 32.39740 nautical miles stretch between mile marker 318 in Grand Island, Nebraska and mile marker 390 in Lincoln, Nebraska is the longest straight path in the US Interstate system.
