They Write the Right Stuff

Say what you will about the Space Shuttle, it was never brought down by a software failure.

This Fast Company article, which I linked to long ago in the now-defunct Alien Wine Connoisseur*, explains the whys and wherefores.

Thanks to Dan Sanderson at BrainLog for digging up the link.

* Alien Wine Connoisseur was a weblog I ran intermittently from 1999 - 2004. In June 2004, the hosting company I used went out of business, and in the great confusion of having to move custom software to new hosts, I lost that blog and another. Perhaps they're on the Wayback Machine; they're not in Google cache.
