Hi, something i've questioned for a while, but have not found anything of interest on the web, even though there must be information out there
somewhere. so i thought i would post this question on here. i suppose this is more regarding the apollo astronauts, rather than the shuttle crew, but
can still count for both generations of space explorers. did? or what is the procedure on how they check if a candidate is in the right mind set to go
into space?. i mean what would or are there any measures or a protocol to follow if an astronaut was to freak out up there in space or worse even the
moon?. what measures would nasa and more importantly the other 2 crew members do if the rougue astronaut was to start jepordizing the mission as well
as the crews lives?. has there ever been a case of an astronaut freaking out in space?, are astronauts checked to see if they get on with each other?,
are there measures in place for such an event and has nasa got a plan if such an event were to transpire?
