SPACE.com -- NASA Climate Satellite Crashes in Ocean After Launch Failure
Well that's a waste of taxpayer money. A failure of a quarter billion dollar science spacecraft because the payload fairing didn't separate.
This is what happens when you use a private startup to launch satellites before they are ready. They don't have enough money for adequate ground testing or test launches, and they need contracts just to stay afloat. This is where a space shuttle that didn't completely suck would come in handy.
