KOKO Knows: Fold A Piece Of Paper 42 Times And You Would Get To The Moon

If you folded this piece of paper in half, it would now be twice as thick as it was before. A page of paper is about 0.01 cm thick while the distance from the earth to the moon is about 384,000,000,000 cm. Now the fun starts.When you fold a page once, it will be 2 pages thick. But — and this is key — when you fold it twice on itself, it’s not three, but 4 pages thick. If you fold it a third time, you’ll see that it’s 8 pages thick. Can you see a pattern here? Paper folding is exponential, so that if you fold it a fourth time, it’ll be 16 pages thick, a fifth time will give you 32 pages thick, and so on.By the time you get to 20 foldings, your folded paper is more than 10 kilometers high, which surpasses Mt. Everest. 41 foldings will get you slightly more than halfway to the Moon, so that means that 42 foldings is all it takes! No one has ever being able to fold a paper more than 7 times though. Good luck getting to 42!Photo Credit: Getty
