NASA’s Astronaut Charged With Attempted Kidnapping

Some of the smartest and brightest work for NASA but apparently, some are not able to handle the pressure and love life.

The woman astronaut that flew in NASA’s July 2006 mission was arrested without bail for trying to kidnap another astronaut she also was in love with.

U.S. Navy Cpt. Lisa Nowak was charged with attempted kidnapping, attempted vehicle burglary with battery, destruction of evidence and battery.

Police said Nowak drove from her home in Houston to the Orlando International Airport in diapers to prevent stopping and going to the toilet so that she can confront Colleen Shipman, who the astronaut believed was romantically involved with U.S. Navy Commander William Oefelein, who was a pilot during space shuttle Discovery’s trip to the space station last December.
