Hi,

Sorry to ask a silly question but I was wondering what what it was that NASA got right. That is why you think it is good.  It is possible to quantify, explain what you liked?

The reason I would like to know is for improving

Thanks,

Lisa

I have to agree NASA has gotten "it" probably as good or better than any
gov agency and most others.  maybe it is the standards that the agency
sets or the quality of their folks but it certainly is among the best
