Re: SpaceX is a go for April 30th: 1st commercial launch to space stat

Safe and sound

In some ways, it has the kinds of problems you want to have, in that it shows how rugged your craft is--same with the engine that came apart in the last launch.

Knowing you have redundant thrusters, engine-out, etc.--and that you can brute force your way into salvaging a mission is far better than having to have a lesser vehicle with no margin have to perform perfectly every time.

There are good problems and bad problems.
