I think you mean $125 *million* spacecraft (worth around $210 USD million today) was lost not because of an 'English' engineering team. It was lost because one team was using *English Units* (pounds, feet etc) whereas another team was using the Metric system of Newtons, metres etc. Assumptions were made as to what the units were instead of it being explicitly stated.

Also the link unfortunately doesn’t work as it should begin with `https` but instead it has `http`.
