Shuttle's problems were at root designed in by incessant cost-cutting

Incessant cost-cutting? A shuttle launch cost over ten times the cost of the Soyuz family of rockets the Russians came up with. There were 131 shuttle launches, with 2 losses and 963 Soyuz's, with 24 losses, which actually gives a pretty similar failure rate.
