Richard Feynman, the Challenger Disaster, and Software Engineering : Gustavo Duarte
argues that the process of requirements elicitation as project definition are secondary to the process of creation,testing and learning about nature.

First, each new line of code is checked, then sections of code or modules with special functions are verified.
