“Launching Space Shuttles has always been complicated – thousands of people and millions of parts all have to work just right – all while nature (and sometimes human politics) cooperate. All it takes is one small thing – and a bit of bad luck – and a launch can be delayed again – and again.

This time NASA’s bad luck arrived in threes.”
