In the News "Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon, died Saturday, weeks after heart surgery and days after his 82nd birthday on Aug. 5. Armstrong commanded the Apollo 11 spacecraft that landed on the moon on July 20, 1969, and he radioed back to Earth the historic news of 'one giant leap for mankind'. He spent nearly three hours walking on the moon with fellow astronaut Edwin 'Buzz' Aldrin." Our thoughts are with his family and friends. Such a great man. The world lost a true legendary hero today. This man will be an inspiration for generations to come.

RE[2]: What's all the fuss about

When a scientist makes an error he or she doesn't die, someone else does.

After the first few successful launches, the only errors that caused deaths were those of management. Records show that the scientists and engineers clearly warn of technical problems which management is recorded to have ignored, leading to deaths.

Whatever one thinks of the state of US science, it is undeniable that NASA still has the best in the business and they are rarely wrong.
