NASA was sold faulty rocket parts for 20 years, lost $700 million

A NASA investigation has found the space agency lost $700 million in failed missions as an Oregon-based aluminium supplier Sapa Profiles falsified certifications for nearly two decades. NASA said its 2009 and 2011 missions failed because the fairing, material which covers the satellites, failed to separate on command. The company has agreed to pay $46 million in fines.
