How far can humans hear?

Many different factors- how loud is the sound to start, what frequency sound, humidity and temperature, and so on. But think about this- the 1883 Krakatoa volcano eruption ejected approximately 5.0 cu miles of rock, ash, and pumice. The explosion was heard in Western Australia, about 1,930 miles to the south, as well as Mauritius, about 3,000 miles to the west. VERY loud noise.
