If Mass of the Hubble Space Telescope (11,110 kg) was a standard unit ...

  • Mass of space debris in orbit around Earth (5.5 million kg)...more would be 500 x Mass of the Hubble Space Telescope
  • Mass of a concert grand piano (450 kg)...more would be 1/25 of Mass of the Hubble Space Telescope
  • Mass of an adult male North American Black Bear (280 kg)...more would be 1/40 of Mass of the Hubble Space Telescope
  • Mass of heaviest weights lifted in Olympic Weightlifting (Clean and Jerk) (274 kg)...more would be 1/40 of Mass of the Hubble Space Telescope
  • Mass of an adult male Bengal Tiger (220 kg)...more would be 1/50 of Mass of the Hubble Space Telescope
  • Mass of an ostrich (approx) (111 kg)...more would be 1/100 of Mass of the Hubble Space Telescope
  • Mass of a Southern Cassowary (55 kg)...more would be 1/200 of Mass of the Hubble Space Telescope
