    A bit scarry. I talked to someone who was part of a team that went to help Japans manned space program teams years back — they weer scrry bad at it. The easily cuold have killed astrounauts just in training if anything went wrong. Also, the trainers never tested for how they resopnd to surprizes, just how smoothly they execute the intended timeline.
