As we know the atmospheric pressure at sea level to be approximately 14.7PSI (measured against a vacum)

And since it has been determined that space is not an actual vacum, but does indeed have gas, therefore I presume SOME pressure,

Has anyone calculated how much pressure exists in open space yet? Within the solar system is close enough for a question like this.. I doubt anyone has a reading from outside of it yet.

All the non-Canadians are going to feel left out. LOL

We use the milibar (1000 x Bar) although the I.S. uses the Pascal and for the atmosferic pressure, the Hectopascal (hP) and it is shown daily in the news such as TV reports and newspapers.
This does not apply to aviation equipments since the U.S. dominates and leads almost from the beginning the development and building of civil and military aircrafts.Even the russians use the I.S. in both civil and military aviation.
I just wonder what the chinese use.....The dragon, the dog, the rat or the chicken feet?!?! LOL
