2 Billion! (and counting…)

FireworksTwoBillionIn August 2015, Service Objects validated our 2 BILLIONTH contact and we’re still counting!  

The first billion contact validations took over 10 years – the next billion only took 4 years.  To celebrate, we put together some fun facts around the number 2 billion.

Did you know? 

2 billion miles is equal to: 

– 4,185 round trips to the moon

– 10 round trips to the sun

– 7 rescue missions to Mars for Mark Whatney!*

 2 billion seconds equals 63.42 years (give or take a leap second).

Only 2 movies (both by the same director) have grossed over 2 billion dollars – can you name them? **

 2 billion $100 bills stacked on top of each other would be 135.73 miles tall and weigh over 450 tons (and also worth 200 Billion dollars).HundredDollarBills

2 billion dollars would feed 1 million people ($5 breakfast, $7 lunch, $8 dinner) for 100 days.

 2 billion goldfish would fill 2 football stadiums. That is a lot of fish food.

 It would take 190 years to verbally count to two billion. Just don’t lose count. :)
