#3 (Hat tip to Rand Simberg's Transterrestrial Musings):
"Asked to explain why he did this, Loverro told reporters at the time, "We could have lost a spacecraft twice during this mission." As a result of this, NASA has begun to investigate Boeing's safety culture. The agency also formally opened a process during which its Safety Office will investigate space-agency elements that may have led to the incident—likely focusing on why NASA did not detect the errors in Starliner's flight software."

#6 Meters. Feet. What's the difference?

How to convert meters to inches
1 meter is equal to 39.37007874 inches:

1m = (1/0.0254)″ = 39.37007874″

The distance d in inches (″) is equal to the distance d in meters (m) divided by 0.0254:

d(″) = d(m) / 0.0254

#7 More precisely, one foot is 0.3048 meters. Exactly.

Ditch the 39.37" to the meter.
