1. not news
2. the rocket was faulty - you get what you pay for
3. i hated the attention - more specifically, the *angle* of the attention - this story got from the start.
space exploration isn't about being cheap. it's about doing it right. and engineers aren't fucking about being cheap, either.
all this story does is make extremely wealthy corporatists drool and jizz their stockings. the idea that the brightest minds could be coerced into working for less is all they're fucking born for.
fuck this story and fuck the people who pretend like it's amazing that india can fuck around on the cheap. it's sad that everyone involved was not paid significantly more money.
by the way, millions of people are starving in india.
i can see the fucking retarded headline, now:
"India Gets Being Alive On Earth Done Cheap"
eat a dick, India!
