;-)) You are not the only one.

Florian Rheinstetten entered his name. Here is the answer:

I like these examples. Aren't informations put in an unexpected
perspective the germ of creativity, of innovation? Any yes,
this is what I expect /in the long run/ from a system like Alpha.

P. S. Interestingly Alpha gave a different answer when I asked:
Bart to Goddard | 6525 km (kilometers) | 7 hours 20 minutes
An American engine which knows the metric system!
This by itself means innovation ;-))
