How were these costs incurred? I have a detailed document describing the
first United States manned orbital space flight and that was done using
ft, inches, Lbs, degrees F etc, but that was in 1962. I find it hard to
believe the use the same units these days.
look what not using it cost the Nasa space programme!
Modern USA scientific literature seems to be metric.
