    That crash occured because two different teams were working the computations, one using Imperial and the other team using metric and each assumed that they other team was using the same units and neither side ever confirming that the other team was using the same units. "ASSUMPTIONS make an ass out of you and me," a very expensive ass that time.

    Wanna bet all the computations on the moon shot were done in MKS ??
    
    The only time that I know of when Imperial measurements were used the
    probe crashed into Mars.
