I guess the standards for success have changed. Tesla, a private company, is a success, but it couldn’t exist without government bailouts and subsidies. Solar power is a success, but it can’t meet the energy demand. Here we have a rocket ship that was supposed to make a round trip, except it crashed and blew up on landing. But it was a success!
Yeah a success that ranks up there with the Titanic and Hindenburg. Who can forget Franz Reichelt who was the first to parachute from the Eiffel Tower?
The Road to Hell is paved With Good Intentions
Do You Know these folks?
Participation trophies are worthless. Almost and also rans don’t count.
