Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about 4,000,000,000,000,000,000 times as fast as Grass growing.
In other words, 534 times the speed of light is 4,000,000,000,000,000,000.000000000000000000000 times the speed of Grass growing, and the speed of Grass growing is 0.000000000000000000250 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.
It's about 2,500,000,000,000 times as fast as a Sloth.
In other words, the speed of a Sloth is 0.000000000000420 times 534 times the speed of light.
(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 300,000,000,000 times as fast as an Iceberg.
In other words, the speed of an Iceberg is 0.00000000000300 times 534 times the speed of light.
(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 100,000,000,000 times as fast as Walking Pedestrians (in Manhattan).
In other words, 534 times the speed of light is 120,000,000,000 times the speed of Walking Pedestrians (in Manhattan), and the speed of Walking Pedestrians (in Manhattan) is 0.00000000000830 times that amount.
(Manhattan; average speed; 8,978 person-sample)
A 2006 Study by the New York City Department of City Planning found that pedestrians in that city walk at an average rate of 0.00000000430 times the speed of light. Pedestrians wearing headphones, the study went on to find, walk at a slightly faster 0.00000000470 times the speed of light
It's about 80,000,000,000 times as fast as Michael Phelps.
