Not Having a Good Week

Not me – NASA.

But between drunk astronauts and sabotaged computers, and embezzlement, I have a gut feeling (and no more than a gut feeling, mind you – I know nothing) that there is a lot less to all this then meets the eye. From Kenneth Chang in the NYT:

For those hoping for juicy details on the drunk astronauts, there aren’t any. The review panel was told of anecdotes of two astronauts who were intoxicated just prior to flight. However, the panel did not pass on information identifying the individuals or the flights. NASA officials said they were investigating but could not say whether the incidents actually occurred.

I don’t want to come off as an apologist for NASA, but this is their side of the story.
