Astronauts are people too

Thats the only thing I can think of after reading this article on space.com: Astronaut Charged With Kidnap Attempt. And they’re not talking about someone in the astronaut program training to go up…they’re talking about someone that was on the July shuttle mission!

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — An astronaut drove from Houston to Florida, donned a disguise and confronted a woman she believed was romantically involved with a space shuttle pilot she was in love with, police said. She was charged with attempted kidnapping and other counts.

U.S. Navy Capt. Lisa Nowak, 43, who flew last July on a shuttle mission to the international space station, was also charged with attempted vehicle burglary with battery, destruction of evidence and battery. She was denied bail.

Seriously, WTF?!?

  1. Heh – interesting 🙂

    When you are in love, I guess it doesn’t matter if you are an astronaut, a car salesman or a burger flipper.
