Lately, astronaut Lisa Nowak has been fired from NASA, a month after she was charged with trying to kidnap a woman she regarded as her romantic rival for the affections of a space shuttle pilot. Her dismissal did not reflect the space agency’s belief in her guilt or innocence instead the agency lacked an administrative system to handle the allegations. Since, Nowak was a naval officer on assignment to NASA, rather than the organization’s civil servant so she would be returned to the military. She would be assigned to the staff at the Chief of Naval Air Training in Corpus Christi, Texas, starting in two weeks. Navy Cmdr. Lydia Robertson said she didn’t know what specific job Nowak would be doing. It was the first time NASA has publicly fired an astronaut and she being the first active astronaut to be charged with a felony.
