Info about "Light year"

A light-year refers to the distance of light (in a vacuum) within one year. There are different definitions for a year (Gregorian year, tropical year, Julian year etc.), therefore the Julian year (365.25 days) was used as a definition for the light year. A light-year is converted to 9,460,730,472,580.8 km, around 9.5 trillion km. For example, the Milky Way is 100,000 light-years long because distance is difficult to measure in kilometers.

Info about "Mile"

The mile is very common in the Anglo-American countries, but does not belong to the international unit system SI (Système international d'unités).

The term Mile originated during the Roman Empire as a sequence of 1,000 double steps, or mille passus (thousand steps). Nowadays a distinction is made between the land mile described here and the sea mile described in nautical studies. Therefore, 1 mile is equivalent to 1.609344 kilometers or 1 kilometer is equivalent to 0.62137 miles.
