2+2=4, according to NASA

7 09 2007

Slashdot – Mars Rovers Return to Exploration: “Typically, the solar panels on each rover produce about 700 watt-hours of electricity per day — enough to light a 100-watt bulb for seven hours, according to NASA.”

Honestly I didn’t think that the fact that multiplying 100 watts times 7 hours yields 700 watt-hours was so controversial that stating it needed qualifying the statement with “according to NASA”. What about the square root of 2 being approximately 1.4142 “according to Archimedes”? 😉
