Summary form only given. In the late 2003, Japanese were shocked three unexpected failures of space program expended more than 1.7 billion US dollars. Our group, supported by NASDA, has proposed emergent synthetic environment (ESE) systemized recent advanced information technologies in order to overcome the present tragedy since 1998. By investigation of the total process, ESE could intelligently support the space programs in order to make spacecraft dependable. Timely interests of our dependability society have been placed on hardware, software, systems and individuals with regard to the complexity of the objectives. The above suggest, as our next research work, investigation into the dependability of an organization or a human group armed with a certain information.
