NASA Says Company Lied, Caused $700 Million Satellite Failure

They lied about a bunch of tests and costs us taxpayers a ton of money.

Bunch of con men. Money > Integrity.

I’ll never understand why someone can bilk others for millions and receive a monetary penalty for less than the damage they caused and little to no time behind bars?

And allowed to re-brand and stay in business.

I wonder if they were given a break in the name of climate science?

I think you just answered your own question.

Lab supervisor got jail time:

Second, from in or about 2002 through September 2015, Dennis Balius, the SPI testing lab supervisor, led a scheme to alter tests within SPI’s computerized systems and provide false certifications with the altered results to customers. Balius also instructed employees to violate other testing standards, such as increasing the speed of the testing machines or cutting samples in a manner that did not meet the required specifications. Balius pleaded guilty in July 2017 and was sentenced to three years in prison and ordered to pay over $170,000 in restitution.

And Leadership continues to keep and make their millions.

Yep…it’s very, very, very wrong. I think some of it has to do with most politicians being lawyers.
