DNA

Have you ever wondered what's the length of information encoded in our genetic memory? One extraordinary way to put it follows like that: there are over 3 billion base pairs of DNA in human genes and over 25,000 genes in the human genome. An entire copy of that genome exists in each of the 10 trillion cells in the human body. If all of that DNA were lined up, it would cover the distance between Earth and the sun 100 times, which is 152.03 million km x 100 = 15,2 billion kilometers.
