In my company, we are lucky enough to have a developer who used to be in the rocketry domain. He's a good guy, and very smart. But whenever I hear "It's not rocket science...", I have to think twice.
Most of what we as testers do isn't about breathtaking new accomplishments or scientific advances. Most of what we do involves more practical, real-world thinking and hands-on work.
It's sometimes challenging, sometimes tedious, sometimes just plain roll-up-the-sleeves-and-dig-in hard work.
But usually it's not rocket science.
Unless you work in rocketry - in which case it might just be rocket science.
