These guys are so proud that there's "zero margin of error" but frankly that's not very smart engineering. Hope it works.
And what suggestions do you have for these amateurs at NASA?
So is this thing gonna smash to bits?
Is there a Vegas line on it?
I think they are making it sound more daunting then it is so they can grab ass each other once it lands safely.
Tss what's it goin to Mars to gamble or sumptin
Pfft.. I been to mars before. La-di freakin-da.
If there's truly "zero margin for error" they should design in belt-and-suspenders redundancies so there are acceptable margins for error.
And if preliminary analysis of mission success indicates it's unacceptably low, they shouldn't spend $2500000000 attempting it.
I suspect you're right.
