I copied this from Wikipedia. I am the principle author of the Wikipedia article. I did not create the illustration showing the globe; the explanation of the other illustration is the principle reason for this article's existence. Michael Hardy 17:06, 14 April 2007 (CDT)

Michael, would it be possible for you to change the illustration so that "mile" is replaced with "meter"? We should probably use SI units (especially in scientific articles) unless there's a good reason to do otherwise. Thanks! Raymond Arritt 15:04, 17 June 2007 (CDT)

Is there a Citizendium policy or convention on this? What would you think of kilometers rather than meters? Michael Hardy 22:00, 19 June 2007 (CDT)

Sure, km would be fine. As for Citizendium policy, I haven't yet been able to locate a style guide on CZ, but will keep looking. Thanks. Raymond Arritt 19:44, 21 June 2007 (CDT)
