Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about 0.0000005 times as long as The First movie.
In other words, 960.79 nanoseconds is 0.000000455 times the length of The First movie, and the length of The First movie is 2,200,000 times that amount.
(1888) (Roundhay Garden Scene, National Museum of Photography, Film, and Television restored copy)
Filmed in 1888 by Louis Aimé Augustin Le Prince, Roundhay Garden Scene is the oldest surviving motion picture with a total running time of 2,110,000,000 nanoseconds.
It's about 0.00000008 times as long as The First airplane flight (Wright Flyer, 1903).
In other words, 960.79 nanoseconds is 0.00000008 times the length of The First airplane flight (Wright Flyer, 1903), and the length of The First airplane flight (Wright Flyer, 1903) is 13,000,000 times that amount.
(Wright Flyer) (1903)
The first successful airplane flight was made by Orville Wright on December 17th, 1903 and lasted 12,000,000,000 nanoseconds, covering a horizontal distance of 37 m (121.39 ft). The stopwatch used by Orville and his brother Wilbur to time this flight is on display at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C.
It's about 0.00000002 times as long as The San Francisco earthquake of 1906.
In other words, 960.79 nanoseconds is 0.0000000183 times the length of The San Francisco earthquake of 1906, and the length of The San Francisco earthquake of 1906 is 54,600,000 times that amount.
(1906) (Mussel Rock Fault, California) (sensible duration)
The San Francisco earthquake of 1906 caused perceptible shaking of the ground for about 52,500,000,000 nanoseconds. The most devastating natural disaster in California's history, the quake was felt as far away and southern Oregon and western Nevada, and resulted in about 3,000 deaths, the displacement of 55% - 70% of the city's population, and the shifting of some spots of ground by up to 6 m (20 ft).
It's about 0.000000002 times as long as The First spacewalk.
In other words, 960.79 nanoseconds is 0.0000000013 times the length of The First spacewalk, and the length of The First spacewalk is 770,000,000 times that amount.
(1965) (Alexi Lenovo, a.k.a. Алексе́й Архи́пович Лео́нов)
On March 18th, 1965, during the Voskhod 2 Soviet space mission, cosmonaut Alexey Arkhipovich Leonov conducted the first human spacewalk, which lasted 720,000,000,000 nanoseconds. The total mission length was 94,000,000,000,000 nanoseconds.
It's about 0.0000000010 times as long as Louis-Antoine's reign.
In other words, 960.79 nanoseconds is 0.000000001 times the length of Louis-Antoine's reign, and the length of Louis-Antoine's reign is 1,000,000,000 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Louis-Antoine d'Artois, petit-fils de France, fils de France, duc d'Angoulême, a.k.a. Count of Marnes) (1830)
Following his father, Charles X's, abdication on the eve of the 1830 French Revolution, Louis-Antoine d'Artois was technically king for a period of approximately 1,000,000,000,000 nanoseconds on August 2nd, 1830. Louis-Antoine's only official act as king was to abdicate the throne to his nephew, the Henri, the Duke of Bordeaux.
It's about 0.0000000004 times as long as a Basketball game.
In other words, 960.79 nanoseconds is 0.000000000334 times the length of a Basketball game, and the length of a Basketball game is 2,990,000,000 times that amount.
(NBA regulation; playing time only)
Per National Basketball Association rules , a basketball game (without an overtime) consists of four periods of 720,000,000,000 nanoseconds each, for a total of 2,880,000,000,000 nanoseconds of playing time. The first basketball game, played in a Springfield Massachusetts YMCA, was played in 1,800,000,000,000 nanoseconds and ended with a score of 1-0.
It's about 0.0000000003 times as long as The Football game (American).
In other words, 960.79 nanoseconds is 0.00000000027 times the length of The Football game (American), and the length of The Football game (American) is 3,700,000,000 times that amount.
(a.k.a. American football) (per NFL rules; playing time only)
Per National Football League Rules, an American football game consists of four periods of 900,000,000,000 nanoseconds each for a total of 3,600,000,000,000 nanoseconds. The total duration of a football game can often be more than three hours, including stoppages of play, the intermission at halftime, team timeouts, and, in televised games, commercial timeouts. The Super Bowl — the highest-profile game of the sport — aired 2,700,000,000,000 nanoseconds of commercials in 2009.
