Sounds like a scapegoat to me. Find a young technician that nobody likes blame it on him. All good, move on.

Well the cost was probably astronomical! I noticed the top stage "ejected" with a parachute, hopefully there isn't too much damage to the payload then.
not to mention the extra force added with gravity and the rockets boosters still pushing the thing back down to earth. Me thinks a total loss of ship and payload

Officials recovered two of the yaw sensors in the rocket's debris field, finding evidence they were forcibly installed 180 degrees from their proper position.

"well, these sensors are supposed to fit, maybe with a little push - brings hammer."

Investigators instructed the manufacturer of the yaw sensors to change their design to prevent their improper installation on future rockets
Sounds like they were already designed that way if he needed to "forcibly install" it.

Forcing anything to install properly just sounds like a bad idea when you're dealing with rockets. :-o

paid sabotage ?
^ I wouldn't discount it...
It's basically a dumb-proof design. You really have to use a hammer to put it there upside down.

More likely explanation (Occam's Razor): built on a Monday after a vodka fueled weekend.
