## Behind the scenesEdit

The metric system is the primary form of measurement. However, temperature units would not be named Kelvin, or Fahrenheit, since they were named for men from Earth, but rather by centigrade or the more benign "standard" developed in the online Visual Guides. Despite this, certain units are used that are named after scientists from Earth, including celsius, watt, joule, and hertz.

The metric system also applies to quantities as well, beyond the standard SI prefix. See Large Numbers for more details.
