Astronaut Lisa Marie Nowak was arrested on multiple charges.


Nowak, 43, is charged with attempted kidnapping, battery, attempted vehicle burglary with battery and destruction of evidence. Police considered her such a danger that they requested she be held without bail in the Orange County Jail, reports show.


It seems that She, and Air Force Capt. Colleen Shipman are both after the same man, Bill Oefelein, another NASA astronaut.



The whole story can be found here:
Astronaut Arrested

All I can add is:
In Space, no one can hear you "scheme".

Oh my, how the mighty have fallen!

I don't think even a chick fight could get any astronaut man turned on to that second pic

yeah!

Those photos. Amazing transformation.
I'm sure that some of it had to do with her being is disguise, and drive 12 hours to meet the other woman at the airport. Those long road trips can wear you out.
But she really does look radically different.
From Girl next door, to Girl on the next corner.


But it also makes me wonder about long-haul spaceflights, and potential love triangles.

astronauts are humans too


and they are subjected to life's little problems too


and, as you may have guessed, they can react to these problems in literally any way, just like the rest of us


i am not condoning this course of action, i am just pointing out that, just because she is an astronaut, doesn't make her all high-and-mighty enough to not do these kinds of things...

Nice one.

Man, this chick was Serious



Nowak -- who was a mission specialist on a Discovery launch last summer --
was wearing a trench coat and wig and had a knife, BB pistol, and latex gloves in her car, reports show.
(-From spacedoubts' link)

Guess that astronaut training paid off, eh?


They also found diapers, which Nowak said she used so she wouldn't have to stop on the 1,000-mile drive


Kinda scarey, actually.

oh yea, I thought 'mission specialist' was rather ironic, too.

I agree. They are people. And can certainly make mistakes.

But there is also quite a bit of self-discipline involved.
Which is what makes this story so interesting to me.

But as J-bird pointed out, diapers on a 12 hour drive..That IS self discipline.

Oh man! I literally jumped back in my seat when I scrolled down to the second picture.


Her defense team is going to have to make her sound like she wasn't capable of pulling it off.

Sounds like the stress got to her. A diaper! Ewwww. I would make that face too if I was wearing a soiled diaper!!


She is married with 3 children. How sad. The man probably doesn't give a flip about either one of them. Now her career and marriage will be gone. Some things just are not worth going nuts over. She couldn't have been thinking clearly to risk it all.

I wonder what the percentage of astronauts have mental stress or problems.

Priceless....

Wow, along way from the right stuff. NASA has turned into a circus that has become another bloated government entity. I suppose psych evaluations are not required when diversity is more important than character. A huge black mark on ANYONE who has put the time in and risked their life to advance space travel. That mug is up there with Nolte's.

Astronauts: Not just for drunk driving and fighting in bars anymore.



Since when have astronauts been faultless god-people without sin or vice?

People do stupid stuff when they're in love, no biggie.

Also, that picture is not nearly as haggard as y'all are making it out to be - not by a long shot.

Nick Nolte, Pee-Wee Herman, JAMES BROWN - hell, even Marylin Manson's was worse.

And those are just the celebrities...

Remember the paint sniffer with the golden muzzle?

:shk:

She looks as though shes been using a lot of drugs, namely amphetamines.

I could be wrong but it sure as hell looks like it.

I was waiting for someone to post this.

1.)No excuse. She needs help.

2.)Amphetamines? Then she needs help.

This is a serious blow to NASA's image, however one looks at it.

#2 is very curious though, could it be? Is our drug problem that bad?

The differences in those pictures reminds me of the pictures taken of Margot Kidder (of Superman movie fame) when she had a mental health issue. I have to wonder if the same type of thing may be going on here ...

What strikes me most about this story is the fact that NASA should have an extensive battery of psychological tests in place to ensure that we have the most stable people in America being deployed into space.

How did she slip through? Are these tests not accurate?

As far as the drug allegations, I would have to ask:
Doesnt NASA have drug tests, or is it just McDonalds that wants clean employees?

Instead of Girls Gone Wild; its Space Girls Gone Wild. With all of the complex and highly intense training that they do over time; its possible that she might have been pushed 'over the edge' a bit by stress, etc. Drugs could have possibly been involved, if she was using them to try to keep going, and became addicted.

I'm sure NASA watches the astronauts closely for signs of trouble; but they might need to examine and address some of the things they watch for.

I think this is hilarious. Wearing depends so you don't have to stop along the way is definately a great idea! Hah, who would have thought. I bet she will get community service due to temporary psychosis resulting from Premenstural Syndrome. Or, she's a meth addict...

That's what really gets me. You would think that these people go thru the most stringent tests possible.

We could have a case of a woman sleeping her way onto the space shuttle.

Somehow, I suspect her defense will be much more complex than we can imagine. There will probably be special witnesses who study in the field of space medicine that will discuss space flight and mental health. Perhaps, they will discuss how mental health can be affected by exposure to gamma-rays, weightlessness, and other environmental factors. And maybe there is some truth to that.

Bless her heart, she got wraped up in life a little too tight.

She will be in rehab soon and in 90 days she will be as good as new. Well, not quite.

Booze, pills and who knows what else distort reality to the point that normal people do very bizarre things.
