> there's a chance that they'll have grown up and gathered enough coping strategies and reprogrammed their own behaviour enough that they're almost indistinguishable
Read that again, you wrote it, there is a special word there: CHANCE
The reality is that most never learn to cope, they only learn to cope partially.
So instead of having social peers to interact with, you have issues. And thats really bad.
It also means you stunt your social growth by years, if you ever recover.

So what is the article objectively stating?
Propaganda against NASA?
For free libre whatever for something?
Mismanagement of funds?
The normal forgetting of that 150 millions is a drop in a bucket for a large enough corp?
I am just curious.

>plans to spend $150 million human-rating a rocket engine it will only use once
Why is this a bad thing? Its how prototyping works. Some years down the line, they might want a version 2 for something else.

Does packet drop actually exists in the wild? Outside of noise over long distances? In the normal world? That is my question to that.
Packet loss means whoever is between A and B, is fucking up. Somewhere.
Be it having wireless transfer somewhere on the backbone, faulty infrastructure, or destroyed wires. I don't think Packet Loss and "loss of Connection" actually exists in the actual wild.
Add in 3-4 extra paths for packages, and we might got something robust.

Every year there is flodding. Every year people are confused over the fact they got houses in a flood area?
Not really.
They choose to love where the flood comes
They should accept it? Right?
To some extent.
I know that work and social life is limited to where those are. So I know a lot of people moved somewhere for one of those 2, they didn't choose to live in a flooded area.
Still doesn't change the fact they could have moved uphill.
