Astronaut Facing Attempted Murder Charge

02/06/2007: Lisa Nowak–who flew on the Space Shuttle last year–has been charged with attempted murder.

Bad news: she has a master’s degree in aeronautical engineering.

Good news: she is not a graduate of my alma mater (Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University)

More bad news: she is a Captain in the Navy.

Even more bad news: she is a robotics specialist. (I do that when I’m not at work.)
