meten = weten
Measure twice, cut once. To measure is to know. Clothes maker, construction worker, or scientist, measuring is necessary in many subjects, expertise, and research. Measuring provides certainty — or does it? Why does a ton weigh less in the United States than here? Why is a nautical mile longer than a regular mile? Is physics as solid as we think? From scales to rulers and everything in between. Will you be the next Kamerlingh Onnes?!
