That must have been one heck of a trip Atlantis went on.As it left one woman feeling like this.


(CNN)-HOUSTON, Texas (AP) -- An astronaut from the space shuttle Atlantis collapsed twice Friday during a welcome home ceremony, a wobbly return that officials attributed to the adjustment from 12 days at zero gravity.

I'm sure that's not an uncommon response to returning to earth after a visit to weightlessness. I remember one night in Vietnam after an amphibious landing experiencing vertigo (or something similar) when the sun went down and I had no visual point of reference. It's just unfortunate that it happened on national TV.

Is there any history of this happening to other astronauts? Is it only happening to her? These people are examined up and down after they return from space. Why is this happening to her?

Who the heck knows what sort of probes the aliens put the astronauts through up there?

Seriously...if she were feeling woozy after the mission, I don't think she would have been sent home just yet.
