By definition of 'round', it is perfectly acceptable to say it is round.120 meters...math math math...393.4 feet.
I've mentioned this before but, the first time I had a falling out with my teacher was when I was 7 years old and the latest news from satellite measurements was "600 feet larger circumference in the southern hemisphere". I assume, over 50 years later, they are still teaching that our planet is, "round" in third grade. No child left behind, lowest common denominator, don't confuse them with facts, etc. I really must get over my false expectation that the American public schools will eventually catch up with reality.
There is a spot that marks the geodetic center of the U.S. in Kansas. There are plenty of datums. In the U.S. there is NAD-27, NAD-83, WGS-84, et al.Wouldn't they also need to define an exact spot on the earth where a measurement is taken in order for it to be equal to the official kilogram?
It was pretty subtle. A small title bar came across the screen at the commencement of the video. Ms Katie Green spoke with an Australian accent and it seems works for the Precision Optics division of CSIRO. In any event I was aware of the project a long time ago. I live in Australia.Yes I know what it means. I do not recall it being mentioned where it was made.
