Ascent Module thrust-to-weight-ratio[edit]

The article currently says "2.124 (in lunar gravity)". Given the stated APS thrust of 16 kN, gross mass of 4700 kg and lunar gravity of ~1.62 m/s^2, it should be 16 kN / (4.7e3 kg * 1.62 m/s^2) = 2.101, not 2.124 -- unless I'm missing something. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 78.42.165.165 (talk) 04:10, 17 December 2013 (UTC)
