auburnjunky: She mumbles so much I'll take your word for it! No, I think you heard right. 14M is still astonishingly smooth on a world scale, where the real relief is almost 20,000M.

Canoas: It was not put clearly, but yes, what she was saying was that if the metal sphere was enlarged to Earth size, the greatest relief would be 40mm. I should have wondered that a tech would say something as bizarre as how I heard the first two times. That 40mm precision is phenomenal. Thanks for clearing that up. PS: much of the world still can't use a calculator!
