Dear everyone,
I would like to know which one of the meter or the mile is used to send objects in the space please?
Indeed, the ESA is using the meter I suppose and the NASA the mile. What is used by the russian and the chinese agencies?
Thank you,
Best regards,
Emilie

Thank you. The United-States' customary unit is the lbf.s, but the metric units are used in the medical and spatial industry.
