*The parsec (symbol: pc) is a unit of length used to measure the large distances to astronomical objects outside the Solar System, approximately equal to 3.26 light-years or 206,000 astronomical units (au), i.e. 30.9 trillion kilometres (19.2 trillion miles)* [source : Wikipedia]

## What is Pica (1/6 inch) & Pica (1/72 inch)

The **pica** is a typographic unit of measure corresponding to approximately ^{1}⁄_{6} of an inch, or from ^{1}⁄_{68} to ^{1}⁄_{73} of afoot. One pica is further divided into 12 points.There are 6 picas in 1 inch. To convert from inches to picas, multiply your figure by 6 (or divide by 0.16666666666667) .
