- The total storage needed by Google Mail as of April 2012, ignoring backups and compression, is more than an exabyte (10240 megabytes of storage per user multiplied by an estimated 260 million users).
- 1 EeV = 1018 electronvolts = 0.1602 joule
- 1 exasecond is approximately 32 billion years
- 1 exametre is approximately 110 light years
- 0.43 Es ≈ the approximate age of the Universe
- 1.6 Em—172 ± 12.5 light years—Diameter of Omega Centauri (one of the largest known globular clusters, perhaps containing over a million stars)
- The metric system was introduced in 1795 with several metric prefixes, of which, however, only six were adopted as SI prefixes by the 11th CGPM conference in 1960, whereas myria (ma, 104) and myrio (mo, 10-4) as well as double and demi were not adopted. In 1873, micro and mega were recommended by the British Association for the Advancement of Science. The other dates relate to recognition by a resolution of the CGPM.
