Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about 0.000000000000010 times as long as The Voyage of the Mayflower.
In other words, 54.660 nanoseconds is 0.00000000000000960 times the length of The Voyage of the Mayflower, and the length of The Voyage of the Mayflower is 100,000,000,000,000.00000000000000000 times that amount.
(1620)
Having left Southampton, England on September 16th (new style), 1620, the Mayflower dropped anchor near Cape Cod, Massachusetts 5,700,000,000,000,000.000000000000000000 nanoseconds later on November 21st (new style), 1620. The voyagers had planned to travel in a convoy of two ships, but the smaller Speedwell was found to be leaking (evidently as a result of sabotage) and all passengers had to be moved to the Mayflower instead.
It's about 0.000000000000009 times as long as Columbus' voyage to America.
In other words, 54.660 nanoseconds is 0.00000000000000900 times the length of Columbus' voyage to America, and the length of Columbus' voyage to America is 100,000,000,000,000.00000000000000000 times that amount.
(1492) (first voyage)
Attempting to find a western route to Asia, Christopher Columbus set sail on August 3rd, 1492 and landed in the Bahamas on October 12th — 6,000,000,000,000,000.000000000000000000 nanoseconds later. After one of Columbus' ships, the Santa Maria ran aground in present-day Haiti, he ordered that the timber be used to used to build a fort and settlement called La Navidad; it remains missing to archaeologists to this day.
It's about 0.000000000000007 times as long as The First spaceflight (Sputnik).
In other words, 54.660 nanoseconds is 0.00000000000000690 times the length of The First spaceflight (Sputnik), and the length of The First spaceflight (Sputnik) is 140,000,000,000,000.00000000000000000 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Sputnik 1, a.k.a. Спутник-1, a.k.a. "Satellite-1", a.k.a. Простейший Спутник-1) (1957) (total time in orbit)
Launched from Kazakhstan in 1957, Sputnik was the first artificial satellite placed into orbit around Earth, where it remained for 7,900,000,000,000,000.000000000000000000 nanoseconds. During its voyage, it traveled about 70,000,000 km (43,495,983.46 mi), completing an orbit of the planet every 5,800,000,000,000 nanoseconds.
It's about 0.000000000000006 times as long as The Spanish-American War.
In other words, 54.660 nanoseconds is 0.00000000000000580 times the length of The Spanish-American War, and the length of The Spanish-American War is 172,000,000,000,000.000000000000000000 times that amount.
(1898)
The War between Spain and the United States over the liberation of Cuba began on April 25th, 1898 and lasted until the signing of the Treaty of Paris on August 12th, 1898, 9,330,000,000,000,000.0000000000000000000 nanoseconds. The Treaty gave the United States control of Cuba, the Philippines, Puerto Rico, and Guam.
It's about 0.000000000000006 times as long as The First artificial heart patient's survival.
In other words, 54.660 nanoseconds is 0.000000000000005650 times the length of The First artificial heart patient's survival, and the length of The First artificial heart patient's survival is 177,000,000,000,000.000000000000000000 times that amount.
(1982) (Dr. Barney Bailey Clark; first permanent, pneumatic device)
On December 2nd, 1982 Dr. William DeVries implanted the first artificial heart into Dr. Barney Bailey Clark, who went on to live for 9,680,000,000,000,000.0000000000000000000 nanoseconds. This early model of the artificial heart was controlled and powered by an external, 146.51 kg (323 lb) machine that Dr. Clark had to cart with him as he moved throughout the hospital.
It's about 0.0000000000000006 times as long as The Korean War.

The Korean War between North Korea (a.k.a. Democratic People's Republic of Korea, a.k.a. DPRK) and South Korea (a.k.a. Republic of Korea, a.k.a. ROK) began on June 25th, 1950 during the Cold War. The war paused with the signing of an armistice on July 27th, 1953 — 97,460,000,000,000,000.000000000000000000000 nanoseconds — although the war is officially ongoing and marked by occasional border conflicts.
It's about 0.0000000000000004 times as long as World War I.
In other words, 54.660 nanoseconds is 0.0000000000000003960 times the length of World War I, and the length of World War I is 2,530,000,000,000,000.0000000000000000000 times that amount.
