Cassini Geyser-Tasting a Bust

Were-Rabbit Re:This stuff doesn't bode well for software (95 comments)

Eh? This one glitch sends you into a tailspin of not trusting software? You're a real "glass half-empty" kind of guy, aren't you?

Personally, I'd rather look at mind-boggling accomplishments that NASA has done, like those two little rovers on the Martian surface? You know, the ones that were supposed to last some six months and are now going on four YEARS?

Shit happens. The programming and design of anything in space is far beyond the abilities of most people, and I would bet yours as well. The chances of them catching every, single, possible bug is slim. We didn't capture the plume. Okay, fine. So, now NASA can live and learn from this.
