Given that so many are built by people who are *not* *actually* rocket
scientists, 50% success seems pretty good.  I mean, it's not like
there are astronauts on them -- failure can be an option -- but it
would be prudent for organizations to keep that 50% thing in mind.
Hopefully lessens the disappointment.
