Futurama was ahead of its time *Vaporwave plays*
That was the best line in the entire series!
Well, which atmosphere? Jupiter? Mars?
@Tentastic, do you not understand how people came up with pressure units?
@SqurtieMan, 1 atmosphere of force differs on difference planets. PPI is pounds per inch, which is a measurement of pressure
@Tentastic, an atm (atmosphere) is a unit of pressure based off of Earth's atmospheric pressure at sea level at standard temperature.
@RMB, but think of how confusing it would be in space travel millions miles from Earth and some ppl don't know what an atmosphere rephers to
@Drunk Pantless Uncle, refer sorry
@Tentastic, it's a standardized unit, I don't they'd change the unit on every planet, itd make everything far too complicated. Just think, a journal posted on Mars would need to be converted entirely for whatever measurements they took?
@Curmudgeon, yeah thatd be like if one country used a different system to measure weight, distance, and temperature than all the other countries. It would just be stupid
@SpankieMcGee , I feel like your trying to make a metric vs imperial system joke, but youre forgetting that for official journals, projects, etc, scientists and engineers use metric?
@Tentastic, i know it is a video game, but look at Mass Effect and how it measures the atmosphere of each planet you visit by how many earths atmospheres it may or may not take to equal each planet. I would assume thats how we would do it.
@delta3841, that’s precisely how it’s done.
@delta3841, alright, but how many aliens rely on this technology but not have any idea what an earth atmosphere is like
@Tentastic, would think they would have their own for their home planet. Think of farenheit and celcius. Thats just within the same species. Just two different measurements for the same thing.
@delta3841, ahhtrue. Cause an inch or pound in PPI is also a human standard of measurement. So an atmosphere would be right there next to them.
@Tentastic, Luckily these are all Earth aliens.
@Tentastic, pounds per inch? You can't even exert a force on "1 inch," it's a line. PSI or pounds per square inch is what I think you're looking for
@palkodots, I was thinking Pounds Per Inch^2 but ur right it's PSI, Pounds/Sqr Inch
And that’s bad right? Right??
