OK, I have a weird hill to die. This isn’t a complaint, but more a curiosity.

NASA claims all these satellites, telescopes, rovers are suppose to last 2 years and they end up lasting decades. How can agency so reliant on precision miss on life expectancy?

I get they’re missing on the right side of it and that’s 100% a positive, but still. If they said it should last 15 years and it last 17, I get it…but man they miss by a lot.
