    Metric is a better system. These are scientists we are talking about of course they are going to use the logical decimal based system also our space program is now tightly linked to the international space station an several other nations all of which use metric. Given all that using anything but metric would be ridiculous, metric is a very simple system, not hard to understand and anyone "turned off" by it is not much of an enthusiast.

    actually it would be a turn on. the only place left on the earth that is involved in space and still uses the old system is the U.S.. using metric will make it easier for nasa and for space enthusiasts.
