A new report predicted the world will see its first TRILLIONAIRE in the next 10 years. Elon Musk is currently the world’s richest man at $230 billion. But it’s hard to fathom just how much a trillion dollars really is.
Here are a few perspectives to help illustrate the scale:
1. If you were to count to one trillion at a rate of one number per second, it would take you over 31,688 years to reach a trillion.
2 If you stacked one trillion one-dollar bills, the stack would reach over 63,000 miles high. This is more than twice the height of Mount Everest, the tallest mountain on Earth.
3. If you laid one trillion one-dollar bills end to end, it would stretch for about 96 million miles. That’s enough to reach the sun and back multiple times.
Time to Accumulate:
4. If you started counting from 1 and counted one number per second, it would take you over 31,688 years to count to a trillion.
Comparison to Other Large Sums:
5. A trillion is a thousand billion or a million million.
