Comment Better the pad than the shuttle (Score 1) 173

Damage to the pad isn't good, obviously, but I'd rather damage happen to the pad than the shuttle. Damage to the landing pad can be fixed a LOT easier than damage to the shuttle, and there's little to no risk to human life. NASA can inspect the pad to its heart's content (and the public's too) to make sure there's no risk. I wonder if the testing platforms at Stennis Space Center, or others, have any similar damage, since they've vested (supposedly) every engine that eventually goes into space.
