Meters or Miles in the Space

  1. 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,

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