Astronaut Nowak fired by NASA
The U.S. Astronaut Lisa Nowak has been fired by the NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration). She was arrested just over a month ago on charges that she kidnapped a woman she regarded as a romantic rival. 

Police said Nowak drove the 1,000 miles from Houston (Texas) to Orlando (Florida) to confront her rival wearing a nappy,so she would not have to stop for toilet breaks.

She was charged with attempted kidnapping, burglary with assault, and related offences. She pleads not guilty to all charges.
