  •  Great diary, Metric Only. (5+ / 0-)

    I have always believed in mathematics as the "universal language", in that people can communicate effectively as long as there is an agreed-to set of axioms first.

    The metric system is the "axiom" that allows for effective scientific communication (sorry for all the scare quotes).

    BTW, I fixed the S.T.E.M. calculator from my post yesterday. Thanks for pointing out that I was using (gasp) pounds instead of grams in a science project!

    You rock.

    Reuse and commonality are the keys to a robust and profitable space program.
