Coming at you, straight from the "oh sh**" department, NASA has had a bit of a setback lately. As we know Curiosity was a resounding success, redeeming the competence of NASA in many eyes. However, this competence apparently does not translate across all divisions.
While conducting its first test flight, the spacecraft Morpheus exploded on the launchpad. While doubtless this explosion would have delighted many twelve year olds, it probably led many of the engineers on site to weep with frustration. Morpheus is a prototype of a cargo spacecraft for bringing things to the moon.
Maybe we shouldn't be too hard on NASA. All the best engineers were probably working on Curiosity, leaving Morpheus in the hands of the proverbial interns. I doubt I would have done any better.
