The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) recently was reminded of just why keeping track of units is so important. In 1999 a $125 million satellite was lost in the atmosphere of Mars because scientists made some improper assumptions about units. NASA’s scientists at the Jet Propulsion Lab (JPL) in Pasadena, ­California, received thrust data from the satellite’s manufacturer, Lockheed Martin Aeronautics in Denver, Colorado. Unfortunately, the Denver scientists used American units in their measurements and the JPL scientists ­assumed the units were metric.
