Here's something fun just for you to look at:
Spoken Into: (This little tune was inspired by a well-known mishap when the Mars Climate Orbiter spacecraft was lost in space last week. Because of "human error" in computing stemming from space engineers using two sets of measurements, failing to make a simple conversion from English avoirdupois units of miles, yards, feet, and inches as well as pounds and ounces to its metric equivalent, which utilizes kilometers, meters, kilograms, and grams, the trajectory of the satellite was oriented at an altitude too low to withstand the atmospheric stresses on the planet's surface.
While space scientists are scrambling to determine whether a similar error is buried in the
computer files of two other spacecraft currently cruising through space: the Mars Polar Lander,
scheduled to hit the Martian surface on Dec. 3, and the Stardust craft bound for a comet, let's party. You've heard this one before, but play it again, Sam.) This is a parody.
