Comment Re:Asinine to compare manned and unmanned missions (Score 1) 497

Nor do I mean to diminish the [past] achievements of the shuttle team, however one of the responsibilities of good engineers is to scrap the "un-doable" (unrealistic failure rates) instead of waisting money on "going through the motions" towards something that in all likelihood will never happen.

While I agree that you cannot compare man/unmanned missions, one fact still stands: They are not getting it done, where the rover team did.
