Re: I can't get the sensor to fit

Clearly the Russians have a systematic quality assurance

I would have given the poster of this the benefit of the doubt if not for:

1. It being posted by a known AI-synthesized Trump Clone Bot

2. It having a proper statistical basis in the actual data from the field. Do we like it or not, but based on actual launch statistics the old village bus beats any of the other manned flight programs by a very large margin. Shuttle - 135 launches, 14 dead bodies, zero successful landings under major failure conditions. Soyuz - 139 crewed launches, 4 dead bodies, 3+ successful landings under various failure and/or abort conditions with crew alive in all cases (not something the shuttle can claim).
