    A Sextillion is one followed by 21 zeros.) 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000.Tons.

    (Multiply by 2,000 to get pounds)

    This result was determined by calculating the mass necessary to cause a gravitational
    attraction of 32 ft/sec/sec., which is the gravitational attraction from any spot on the Earth' surface.

    That's it!
