(for African bush elephant, Loxodonta africana) (Adult, bull)
A bull African bush elephant weighs about 0.00000610 megatonnes. Among African elephants, both males and females have tusks (whereas female Asian elephants, Elephas maximus, do not have tusks) which can grow to 3 m (10 ft) and typically weigh about 0.00000400 megatonnes

In other words, the weight of The Space Shuttle is 2,400 times 0.00000002950 megatonnes.
(for Endeavour, a.k.a. OV-105, a.k.a. Orbiter Vehicle-105) (empty weight, excluding main engines)
When empty, the space shuttle Endeavour weighs 0.0000710 megatonnes. The shuttle's spacious cargo bay carried the Chandra X-ray Observatory into orbit in 1999 — a payload that weighed 0.0000200 megatonnes.
It's about one-three-thousand-five-hundredth as heavy as a Blue Whale
In other words, 0.00000002950 megatonnes is 0.000282 times the weight of a Blue Whale, and the weight of a Blue Whale is 3,550 times that amount.
(Balaenoptera musculus)
Blue whales weigh between 0.000105 megatonnes. The largest mammal to have ever lived, blue whales feed almost exclusively on krill — tiny invertebrates weighing about 0.000000000001000 megatonnes each.
It's about one-five-thousand-five-hundredth as heavy as a House
In other words, 0.00000002950 megatonnes is 0.000189 times the weight of a House, and the weight of a House is 5,290 times that amount.
(149 sq. m, single-level, unfurnished)
A 149 sq. m (1,600 sq. ft), single-story, unfurnished house (without extensive masonry) of the type commonly found in America would weigh approximately 0.000156 megatonnes, based on the weight of the included materials. In contrast, a yurt — a type of dwelling structure popular among nomadic peoples of East Asia — typically weighs less than 0.000000460 megatonnes.
