In 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).
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.
We are truly grateful to our aweSOme customers for making this milestone possible and looking forward to reaching the next billion even faster.
