'Blank’s Rule': To predict the future, 1/3 of your team needs to be crazy | VentureBeat | Business | by steveblank, Steve Blank Yet in 1961 LOR was a completely insane idea.

If it didn’t succeed, the astronauts might die orbiting the moon. However, Houbolt wasn’t some crank, he was a member of the Lunar Mission Steering Group studying space rendezvous. Since he was only a mid-level manager, he presented his findings to the internal task forces and the experts dismissed this idea the first time they heard it. Then they dismissed it the second, fifth, and 20th time.
