Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, who is keen on calculations, has put Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos’ wealth into a space-themed perspective for us.
In the last year, Bezos became $40 billion richer, ballooning his wealth to over $130 billion. If this were put into dollar bills, each 6.14 inches long, Tyson calculates that the chain of greenbacks would “circle Earth 200 times then reach the Moon & back 15 times then, with what’s left over, circle Earth another 8 times.”

Not that anybody asked, but @JeffBezos‘ 130-Billion dollars, laid end-to-end, can circle Earth 200 times then reach the Moon & back 15 times then, with what’s left over, circle Earth another 8 times.
