Fact of the Day
Each cell would produce a good 2 meters (6.5 ft) of DNA after being stretched, flattened, and laid end to end [source]. There are an estimated 50,000,000,000,000 (50 trillion [US]) cells in an average adult size human body. This leaves us at an astonishingly large 1x10^14 meters long.
The distance from the earth to the moon is a whopping 384,400,000 meters. With a little division and the factoring in of a round trip figure, we arrive at about 130,000 round trips to the moon of stretched and flattened DNA from a single human body!
