Space love triangle

It’s not every day you hear about an astronaut’s attemt to murder a rival to her relationship with another astronaut.

A US astronaut accused of attacking a woman she considered competition for the affection of a shuttle pilot has been charged with attempted murder.

Earlier a Florida court had ordered that Navy Capt Lisa Nowak, 43, who was facing charges of attempted kidnapping and battery, could be freed on bail.

However, the introduction of the more serious charge that she intended to murder Colleen Shipman reverses that.

A mother of three, Capt Nowak flew on the space shuttle Discovery last July.

And the plot thickens... This is as close to a NASA soap opera as you can get.
