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.

Furlongs

A furlong is a unit of length in the imperial and U.S. customary systems of measurement. It is primarily used in the context of horse racing and is equal to 1/8th of a mile. One furlong is approximately 660 feet or 201.168 meters. While the use of furlongs is not as widespread in everyday measurements, it remains a common unit in horse racing, where race distances are often expressed in furlongs. The term has historical origins, dating back to the medieval period, and it has persisted in certain specialized fields.
