NASA's plan for unstable astronauts: Duct tape, tranquilizers

Source Link:

CAPE CANAVERAL, Florida (AP) -- What would happen if an astronaut became mentally unstable in space and, say, destroyed the ship's oxygen system or tried to open the hatch and kill everyone aboard?

That was the question after the apparent breakdown of Lisa Nowak, arrested this month on charges she tried to kidnap and kill a woman she regarded as her rival for another astronaut's affections.

[sarcasm]Dr. Patricia Santy, a former NASA psychiatrist and author of the book "Choosing the Right Stuff," said " We reviewed the film Armegeddon and came to the conclusion that duct tape is a remarkable restraint device in conjunction with incapacitating injections. The afflicted astronaut actually has a Jimi Hendrix type euphoria, and nobody gets hurt.
Let me say that all credit goes to Hollywood on this remedy." [/sarcasm]

Jim Lovell, Jack Swigert, and Fred Haise

Ask those guys about the power of duct tape!

I just suddenly got the mental image of trying to subdue a maniac in zero gravity. It would be like a game of twister, taken to the extreme

Surely they have had contingency plans for this, Human beings have a track record of breaking down at the worst possible moment. I know that for a fact, I've been married.

Still, I look forward to learning more.

MrWupy, you had me laughing myself silly. (Mainly because I can relate. lol)
We had a thread recently about the greatest invention ever and duct tape made top of the list from several posters. One more use for the greatest invention ever.
I guess NASA had to go with something multifunctional and that wouldn't be perceived as critically as, I don't know, uh, anesthedarts and a stun gun?
