Wacky Astronaut Saga Continues


Posted March 6, 2007 - By Stephen Johnson

Lisa Nowak, America's most Dependable astronaut, is back in the news.

The Orlando Sentinel has linked to the email coorespondence that might have driven Nowak over the edge and sparked her 969-mile odyssey last month.

"First urge will be to rip your clothes off," reads one of the notes from Air Force Capt. Colleen Shipman to Nowaks's love interest, astronaut Bill Oefelein, while he was aboard shuttle Discovery in December. "But honestly, love, I want you to totally and thoroughly enjoy your hero's homecoming."

The emails highlight just how inane and not-funny our astronauts are in unguarded moments. We, as a nation, deserve more comical, interesting astronauts. Would a rainbow-wig on a shuttle helmet kill NASA? We think not. Nowak should be a shining example for our brave space-heroes, and should not be on trial.
