Meters

Meters are the fundamental unit of length in the metric system, defined as the distance that light travels in a vacuum during 1/299,792,458 seconds. Meters are widely used in scientific, engineering, and everyday contexts globally. The metric system, including the meter, was established during the French Revolution.

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.
