Astronaut Lisa Nowak was officially charged on March 2 with trying to kidnap a woman that she believed to be a rival for a Shuttle’s pilot’s love. The charge of attempted murder was dropped but the intent to inflict bodily harm and burglary were kept.

On February 5, 2007 Nowak drove several hundred miles from Texas to Orlando, Florida in order to face the other woman with her accusations. She sprayed a chemical substance into the other woman’s car, when her didn’t open the car. Nowak was later arrested and a gun and knife were found in her car that lead to the initial assumptions of attempted murder. Nowak denies the charges and is pleading not guilty.

Nowak flew on Space Shuttle Discovery in 2006 and was scheduled to be ground communicator for the upcoming Shuttle mission to the ISS.
