Abstract
This paper emphasizes how the Chandra telescope hardware was designed, tested, verified, and accepted for flight to benefit all future missions that must find efficient ways to drive out cost and schedule while still maintaining an acceptable level of risk. Examples of how the verification methodology mitigated risk will be provided, along with actual flight telemetry which confirms the robustness of the Chandra Telescope design and its verification methodology.
