Lightyears

A light-year is a unit of astronomical distance, and it represents the distance that light travels in one year through the vacuum of space. Light travels at a speed of approximately 186,282 miles per second (299,792 kilometers per second) in a vacuum. The light-year is commonly used in astronomy to measure distances on a cosmic scale because of the vast distances involved in space. For example, the distance to nearby stars, galaxies, and other celestial objects is often expressed in terms of light-years due to the impracticality of using more familiar units like kilometers or miles for such immense distances.

Centimeters

Centimeters are a unit of length in the metric system, representing one hundredth of a meter. They are commonly used in everyday measurements and are especially prevalent in fields such as science, engineering, and medicine. The metric system, including the centimeter, was officially introduced during the French Revolution as part of the decimal-based system of measurement.
