When Astronauts Attack!

2/6/2007 3:23 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ doesn't usually cover NASA, but this space cadet is so crazazy! And now it's attempted murder!

Astronaut Lisa Marie Nowak appeared in a Florida courtroom this morning, and while she met bail for charges of attempted kidnapping, attempted vehicle burglary with battery, destruction of evidence and battery, she must remain in jail as authorities have charged her with attempted first-degree murder!

Nowak, who was onboard the International Space Station just last year, made front page headlines by driving a 900-mile space odyssey from Houston to Orlando in a diaper -- so she wouldn't have to stop to urinate -- to confront a woman she believed was a romantic rival.

Donning a wig and trench coat and carrying a BB gun and pepper spray, Nowak stalked fellow astronaut Colleen Shipman at a Orlando airport -- believing Shipman was romantically involved with Navy Commander William Oefelein. Shipman noticed someone following her and contacted police, but Nowak soon sprayed a chemical into her car. Set phasers to stun!

Nowak was arrested carrying a bag filled with rubber tubing, $600, a knife, a steel mallet and garbage bags. What, no Tang?

Nowak's conditional release stipulates that she is to have no contact with Shipman. The out-of-this-world astronaut's lawyer is confident that Nowak will return to the Johnson Space Center after the bond is posted. Or to the moon!

What's wrong with women these days? First female teachers hitting on their underage students, and now this! Not to mention she's married with 3 kids. How to professional women expect to be taken seriously with these antics!

WoW! She's nuttier than a fruitcake.

And Farrah you're right; your "brotha" wouldn't take the time to plan out a kidnapping, he'd just lie in wait outside of her condo and slash her and her friend to death, evade the cops, be pronounced innocent and released back into society!!

How would you like to find out that your spouse was cheating on you by seeing his/her mugshot on the news for something like this? Poor NASA husband has to deal with his family baggage in the news now.

Don't forget that the Texas woman who drowned her 5 kids was married to a NASA scientist. Maybe they're exposed to some substance that make them act psycho over there!
