Multiplication is hard…

What connects these two accidents?

Cracked by varuns88 , Atul Mathew , Goyal , gudanggurum , Rohan , Chandrakant Nair , rajeshvj , Dibyo and piezocake.

Answer:

  1. The Gimli Glider, an Air Canada Flight – lost fuel and glided to a halt
  2. The Mars Climate Orbiter – Blew up somewhere over mars

Both mixups happened because of errors in conversion between imperial and metric units :-)
