And I still argue, as SpaceX has, that it needs to meet a rapid-fire schedule of launches to be profitable. Delays endanger that, so if your goal is space commerce, then delays should not be shrugged off.
Be we can still be pals. 😁

Now we all know the shuttle never lived up to its expectations because
the design was flawed from the very beginning and that was not Nasa's
fault but as Jim pointed out just politics.
Now, one can mourn politicians decisions but they are a fact of life all
too often, unfortunately.
Having said that I still regard a successful launch as the one who
delivers its payload in working order in the right orbit being a few
days, a week or a month late.
