    Given c=300,000km/s and there are about 3.3ft/m, the value should be roughly 1.01*10^-9 seconds, or 1 billionth of a sec. Written with the SI prefix, that would be about 1 nanosecond or 1ns.

    Q: What is the SI unit for weight?

    Side question, what does Kilogram actually measure?

    Sorry Marvin, didn't mean to spoil it for you. No takers on my question, it is from the Red Green Blue Mars Trilogy.. I won't say which one, so you all can go read the 3 books. ;)

    As far as I understand there are more than three books in that series. I'm not sure but I think I counted at least eight of them.

    Is that a Douglas Adams style trilogy?

    Ah well, I don't think it was meant to be a trilogy, just that the guy kept writing them and never stopped. Well mayhap he has now, as there hasn't been a new one of recent Novel release history. Not that I am aware of in any case.

    "The fifth book in the increasingly inaccurately named Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy Trilogy"

    He will be sadly missed :(
