not really OT: The Coming Software Apocalypse

This article is exactly why I contend that man can never travel to other planets never mind solar systems, and colonize them. The complexity of something so vast as to be able to get us there would be failing all the time, and we would have to be able to anticipate those failures, and take repair parts several times more tham we predict we might need "just to be safe". Then you get out there, some code that runs the life support starts shutting it down, and the guy who wrote the code is back on planet earth too far away to communicate with. No one on earth would ever know how they all died. 

No my friends and fellow man, we are made of the earth, for the earth.
