Yeah, NASA sckrewed it up... again... :rolleyes:

The reason it crashed, they think, is becasue a small explosive bolt failed to ignite... Pretty stupid how a muli-million dollar mission is ruined by a faulty piece of one-cent equipment.

Yeah. But it was most likely a software error.

Maybe we ought to cut NASA's funding until they get their act together. Anyways, it's a sad loss.

I believe NASA should atleast quadruple check their software before using it. Seems to work out better that way.

That would work, but I don't think the software is to blame... It's those damn explosive bolts... They need to fix those...

Seriously, now, if you can't get something to blow up, what kind of scientist are you?

yes, because that way they would have enough money for maintenance :rolleyes:
