Infamous Astronaut Booted Out Of Navy

An infamous NASA astronaut who pepper-sprayed a romantic rival after a bizarre cross-country car trip is being booted out of the U.S. Navy with an "other than honorable" discharge.

Former shuttle mission specialist Lisa Nowak flew on NASA's STS-121 mission in 2006 -- the space agency's second post-Columbia test flight. Nowak served as a robot arm operator of the flight.

Nowak drove from Houston, Texas, to Orlando International Airport to confront Air Force Capt. Colleen Shipman, who had been dating former NASA astronaut William Oefelein, a Nowak love interest.

Hard to believe when this picture was taken, she was doing wrong behind her husband's back...who was probably her biggest supporter. I remember Lisa because I was struck on how attractive she was, and you see that in this picture and others of her. But from that awful mug shot on, it's like the ordeal was physically draining on her.

I guess it just goes to show you that we have no idea what people are really like and really doing. Such a shame.
