The USS Endeavour is scheduled to launch next month and, if all goes well, it will pointlessly circle the Earth for a few days and then land, probably 3,000 miles away from where it was supposed to touch down, but hopefully in one piece

See, 40% of the fleet has blown up either going up or coming down. Not even American cars have this kind of fail history, but what do you expect from a space program originally run by Spiro Agnew?
