It is an age old problem that still bedevils us.

NASA didn't make a movie, but they destroyed a multi-million dollar space craft a few years ago when someone forgot to convert meters of altitude into feet and the computer controlled retro-rockets didn't fire in time. The larger the project the more chance things will go wrong.

Murphy and gravity always win.
