In a word no, and no they can't make them safe either. Witness C# and Java. All these years of 'safety' and nothing of any serious size or complexity stands up unless manual memory management is used and when it's not memory sizes still balloon and effective leaks still occur.
The safest systems are the most transparent systems where there is little or nothing 'under the hood', in fact there is no hood. Then and only then can the smallest problem be seen for what it is the moment it arrises and hence fixed.
To put it another way, in space there are no 'no user servicable parts inside, do not void warranty by opening' sealed units.
"The secret of happiness is freedom, and the secret of freedom, courage."
Thucydides (B.C. 460-400)
