    And I lived through the era. There was more than a little failure back then that was incompetence as well. If the nuclear deterrent fleet had been as reliable as it should've been for the mission it had been purchased for, the Mercury and Gemini programs could've been finished maybe 2 years sooner, plus or minus the development of computers and other manned space specific elements of the program.

    Remember the first 2/3 of the space race flew on our nuclear deterrent missiles that were blowing up right left and center. Glen's Atlas launch had 10 scrubs, most I think for technical breakdowns.
