Probability of a failure is too high

A vast number of drone expeditions failed with the destruction of the spacecraft

<< Previous (3 of 3 Arguments)


There have been already several failures on drone missions. A manned mission is way more complex and consequently the risks

The Argument

By considering the drone missions there have been quite a few failures which caused the destruction of the spacecraft. Even successful missions (such as Voyager) experienced some technical failures/issues which luckily still allows to accomplish most if not all mission objectives. However since failures n this case does not imply loss of human lives, the level of acceptable risks is higher. A human mission is more complex since it involves a life-maintain system that should ensure safety of the crew.Therefore the risks of a failure are higher. Also no human mission can be considered successful unless astronauta are able to successfully return to Earth; so far all drone missions have been one-way
