Alan Shepard on His First Spaceflight

"It's a very sobering feeling to be up in space and realize that one's safety factor was determined by the lowest bidder on a government contract."

Even on a "man-rated" spacecraft.

Never go with the lowest bidder! They always find ways to add billables & force cost overruns, when the project is too far along to cancel or re-tender!
