    Sad tale of love and stupid choices. Navy CPT Nowak makes some very bad
    moves and this is absolutely the end of her career. I can only wonder what
    nickname she will have after wearing diapers to drive from Houston to Orlando
    so she didn't have to stop and pee....

    No its not an embarassment to the program. She did something wrong. NASA had no knowledge of what she was going to do, nor could they. Therefore NASA can not be acountable for it.

    What typically happens is the liberal press will ask "How could NASA have
    let such a nut case fly in the shuttle?" And then NASA will respond with
    some new layer of protocol and testing...Somehow, somewhere, someone
    will have to be made accountable. Upper management will try and do
    damage control so that person is at the lowest possible level in the chain...

    P.S. - there is a fortune to be made selling souvenir NASA diapers
    on International Drive in Orlando...:D

    There are many over achievers who walk the line in between brilliance and insanity. It’s easy to see how same obsessive personality that can help a woman be a fighter pilot/astronaut may have a dark side. She isn’t used to accepting “NO”. for an answer.
