These are the standards for how nasa employees have to do stuff (soldering, welding, smd, painting, etc)

I have a friend who was a NASA sub-contractor (programmer.)

He had nothing good to say about the experience. The contracting firm was management-heavy, and each time they missed a target deadline, the firm hired more managers. But all the managers did was change the requirements for each target date...

Meanwhile, as they approached the delivery date, more programmers were "let go" at intervals (because the job was "almost done," you see.)

I suppose you can't blame NASA directly, but since NASA oversees and sets the auditing terms.... Now he's amazed missions don't fail every time...

If you actually work for nasa it isn't that bad. My uncle does and he loves it.
