Foot, meter? eh, same thing.

I'm reading a (paper) article about the new Mars probe. The article starts by describing all the failures of previous Mars missions, highlighting especially the one where the metric/imperial units were messed up. But then the article goes on to say of the current mission:

... powerful camera, blah blah, imaging items as small as one meter .....


... unusual resolution and clarity, blah blah, imaging items as small as one foot across .....
