There seems to be a discrepancy between the caluclator and the article, which state that the [maximum] Ssx is c/100 and c/50, respectively. If I enter 299,800 km/s*, it returns 10,000% of maximum... trimming to 2,998 km/s returns 100% of maximum, while the article clearly states 5,995 km/s. What did I miss?

* confirmed by typing "c" into Qalculate. suddenly I wonder if they would accept a Reg units patch... and if they're among those fleeing Github
