Yes, considering science and space is primarily being done in metric units, I think maybe El Reg is going to far in it's "North American Style Guide" by converting from metric to "American" as the prime system. And this conversion is glaringly obvious that either El Reg or the press release it was based on did a conversion of a Very Large Number down the last significant integer place, make it look very, very silly. It might have looked a bit more clever if rounded to the nearest 100 or even nearest 10.
