Captain Lisa Nowak, USN , reports The Orlando Sentinel , has been arraigned for the attempted murder of fellow astronaut and romantic rival Captain Colleen Shipman USAF. The New York Times says the 1985 Annapolis graduate" drove 900 miles to Florida from Texas, wearing a diaper so she would not have to stop for rest breaks...wearing a wig. She had with her a compressed air pistol, a steel mallet, a knife, pepper spray, four feet of rubber tubing, latex gloves and garbage bags."
Captain Nowak, 43, " arrested at 4 a.m. Monday at Orlando International Airport...said the compressed air pistol she carried “ was going to be used to entice Ms. Shipman to talk with her.” Asked if she thought the pepper spray was going to help her speak with Captain Shipman, Captain Nowak replied, "That was stupid.”
The astronaut " was fitted with an electronic ankle bracelet so her movements could be monitored after her " suborbital return to the NASA Houston Space Center.
