   In yesterday's (5 May 99) Wall Street Journal it mentioned that the
American government is starting an investigation to look for a pattern
behind a rash of rocket payload losses totalling four billion dollars
($4,000,000,000) - which dwarfs even Ariane V. They speculate that one

   It may be time to remind them that the occam community can show how
to produce SW/FW/HW of provable quality - using methods simpler and
more reliable than the RTOS and OOP stuff that has led us into trouble.
