Crazy, Love-sick Astronaut Kidnaps!!! ]:0

ORLANDO, Fla. An astronaut drove from Houston to Florida, donned a disguise and confronted a woman she believed was romantically involved with a space shuttle pilot she was in love with, police said. She was charged with attempted kidnapping and other counts.

FOXNews.com - NASA Astronaut Lisa Nowak Charged With Attempted Kidnapping - Local News | News Articles | National News | US News

out take: During a check of the parking lot, an officer followed Nowak and watched her throw away a bag containing the wig and BB gun. They also found a steel mallet, a 4-inch folding knife, rubber tubing, $600 and garbage bags inside a bag Nowak was carrying when she was arrested, authorities said.

She flew a mission into space a few months ago. Is this why she was denied bail; a threat to flee into space?
We have often wondered where the space shuttle pottie is. She wore diapers en route to confront the other woman so she wouldn't have to stop to go to the bathroom. (She will probably be fired just for leaking that TOP SECRET)

To include the $600, the stuff in that bag was weird. Sounded like she raided some kid's room and took their grandma money too. They didn't say what kind of rubber tubing it was; sounds fishy like aquarium stuff.
Somebody's due to go on another mission!

This gal needs help. I feel sorry for her family. The article says she is married with 3 children.

I've down some wacky things for love but this is a bit much. The lady astronaut has done gone and lost it AND she was married to boot!

BTW, off topic, but this thread reminds me of the great movie - Woman on the Edge of a Nervous Breakdown.

Have you seen the photo of her?---She looks just Nicole Kidman when she was found wandering around in a daze which she was. I hope she gets help, too.

Sorry-----I meant that she looked like Margot Kidder not Nicole Kidman---brain cells are getting grayer, I guess.

I agree. I'd think that in order to be in the space program and to go into space the astronauts were put through a rigid psych eval.....at least I'd think so.
Something must have happened to have triggered such a drastic decision to go as far as this and obviously she at the time wasn't mentally fit.
I feel so sorry for everyone involved, especially the innocent children.
Let's all hope and pray she does get the help she desperately needs to get back on the right path, to come to grips with what she did and to learn ways to cope so that she doesn't think of ever doing anything even remotely close to harming another human being.
