Reading a bit about safety critical software I noticed a fundamental problem, namely, when software engineers lack physics education. Unbelievable errors come when programmers take for granted a too simple model of physical reality. Logic is not enough. - Gergely

That is a problem of professional qualification which I would prefer to treat as a separate issue.
