Space, the Final Binge

Hosted by

Astronaut Lisa Nowak was arrested in February on charges she tried to kidnap her rival in a love triangle. An investigative panel was created by NASA, and today it released a sensational finding. On two specific occasions, astronauts were so drunk before launches that concerns were raised about flight safety, but "(t)he individuals were still permitted to fly." Today, NASA held a news conference on the issue. Frank Morring writes for Aviation Week and Space Technology.
