How is the chart wrong when you say the angle has not been measured with accuracy? Nevertheless if one were to build an enormous building for the sole purpose of 'encoding' a particular angle one would hope that they'd get it right. It was also interesting that if they did so and it was so important - yet they never did it again.

If that was the sole purpose I suspect the AE could have gotten in correct. I suspect they did and it wasn't the number 52.
