This is a story I will NOT share with my daughter who aspires to become an astronaut. After years of space camp, astronomy clubs and space themed birthday parties … the recent arrest of Captain Lisa Marie Nowak, a NASA astronaut who was charged with doing “serious bodily injury or death” to another captain in the Air Force. This is a tragic example of how feelings, jealousy and rage can shade even the most educated, analytical and trained professionals.
What a true tragedy … years and years of incredibly difficult training, competition and perseverance … all out the window with one moment of uncontrolled emotions.
This reminds me of Romeo and Juliet … in the end everyone looses!
