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 twenty times as heavy as The Heart of a Blue Whale
In other words, the weight of The Heart of a Blue Whale is 0.05 times 0.00000400 megatonnes.(Balaenoptera musculus) (adult)
(for a 2014 specimen)
The heart of a blue whale weighs about 0.000000200 megatonnes. These hearts pump an estimated 7,100 L (1,875 gal) of blood through the whale's massive body.
It's about twenty times as heavy as a Reindeer
In other words, 0.00000400 megatonnes is 24.20 times the weight of a Reindeer, and the weight of a Reindeer is 0.0413 times that amount.(for Rangifer tarandus granti, adult, bull) (a.k.a. Caribou) ()Rangifer tarandus)
An adult, male reindeer weighs between 0.0000001660 megatonnes. Reindeer undertake a lengthy annual migration, with some herds traveling up to 5,000 km.
To all those observing, Merry Christmas from the Measure of Things.
It's about one-twenty-fifth as heavy as a Blue Whale
In other words, the weight of a Blue Whale is 26.10 times 0.00000400 megatonnes.(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 thirty times as heavy as a Panda Bear
In other words, the weight of a Panda Bear is 0.037 times 0.00000400 megatonnes.(a.k.a. Giant Panda, Ailuropoda melanoleuca)(Adult, male)
An adult, male Giant Panda weighs up to 0.000000150 megatonnes. Despite having the digestive system of a carnivore, the panda eats only bamboo and must eat up to 0.00000000640 megatonnes of it per day to compensate for the limited energy the plant provides.
It's about one-fortieth as heavy as a House
In other words, 0.00000400 megatonnes is 0.0256 times the weight of a House, and the weight of a House is 39.10 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.
