Where does it say that?

edit:
Their numbers are a bit off. They have approx. 3400 miles (5268km) in diameter. It's 5262.4km which works out to 3269.9 miles which would be approx. 3300 mi. But what's 8 km between friends.

Although their conversion is off too, 3400 mi is 5471.8 km.

Nevermind, I am full of errors, yea their conversion is off, but I was totally looking at the wrong numbers.

The mods can delete this now...
