> Please cite a thing such as "the NASA pipeline", perhaps you mean a given mission/experiment?

The specific pipeline I was referring to is the Kepler pipeline that NASA uses to take their raw pixel data and produce photon counts that everyone uses for their research (this wasn't a detector issue, it was a software bug at the final stage of the data publishing process). The point was not the pipeline issue, it was that noise is everywhere.

But as to your point, yeah okay. Maybe I shouldn't talk about statistics when that's not my field. :D
