    Putting aside the irony of how we mocked Iran for a supposedly failed rocket/satellite launch a few days ago, anybody is surprised and disturbed by how many rocket/shuttle quality and failure issues we have been seeing with NASA lately?

    Oh, and ATK has been making this stuff for a while, you'd think they would have more luck.

    I know little, but the complexity of a satellite launch must be massive.

    I really don't care about the failures, but welcome them when they occur for a "strategic" satellite deployment. ;)
