What Is The Biggest Thing In The World? Depends On How You Measure it!

What Is The Biggest Thing In The World? Depends On How You Measure it!

When I first pondered this question, I was thinking mountains and landscapes and things like that. But when it comes to determining the biggest thing (or things) in the world, it’s actually easier to define in categories.

How could you even figure out what’s the world’s biggest thing? Couldn’t you say that the ocean is the world’s biggest thing? The sky? I guess I’m getting a bit abstract now, so let’s break this question down into its parts.

That’ll help us all understand what is the biggest thing in the world! And when you finally wrap your head around this one, give the hottest thing in the universe a go next!

  1. Biggest Swimming Pool in the World

We definitely have a fascination with swimming pools here at Indie 88. This one, however, tops them all in terms of size. The biggest swimming pool in the world is located in San Alfonso del Mar, and is 3,324 feet long. Kinda looks like part of the ocean, no?

2. Biggest Dump Truck In The World

For some reason this looks like it’s from a Mark Wahlberg movie.

The BelAZ 75710 (who named this?) is the biggest dump truck in the world. It can carry a 450 metric tonne load. Manufactured in Belarus, the creators consider it “earthmoving equipment”. That’s a lot of earth you can move in that truck.

3. The Biggest Animal Ever To Live On Earth

The Amphicoelias is the biggest animal to ever have lived. It was almost twice as long as a blue whale. However, because of its thin neck and tail, it was around 60% of the weight of a blue whale. So I guess it’s the longest animal to have ever lived but I don’t feel like changing the subheading.

4. Biggest Cave In The World

I think I have to go to this cave. We’ve written about other caves, and while super fascinating and almost alarming… this one in Vietnam seems really really special. Magical.

It’s so intriguing how much space exists in this planet that we don’t even know about. It’s between two and five million years old. Think about that.

Bonus: What’s The Biggest Thing in The Universe??

Ok. Let’s blow your mind a little bit at the end here.

The biggest single entity scientists have found and labelled in the entire universe is a supercluster of galaxies known as the Hercules-Corona Borealis Great Wall.

It’s so wide that light takes about 10 billion years to move across the entire structure. Put that in your pipe and smoke it.
