Jean Marc,

True, but I was really meaning more the immediate loss that all these teams suffered. I know TIS people were dissapointed, but they are determined to try again.

Subject: [AMSAT-BB] Re: Help receiving GENESIS satellites - (and Apollo)

Bob,

The Apollo 13 story has been a greet lesson for me, basically how to to make the best when all goes wrong and I used this example many times in my professional life to demonstrate how to cope in crisis situation. Leadership and down to earth logical solutions. But most important in these case of crisis is have a strong leadership and a captain on board.

About failures and learning from same I guess the SpaceX/Elon Musk experiences these days speaks more that any other ones.

My one cent additional input.
