ASTRONAUT NOWAK CHARGED WITH ATTEMPTED FIRST-DEGREE MURDER
Astronaut Lisa Nowak was charged with attempted first-degree murder on February 6, 2007. Police say that Nowak drove 900 miles and donned a disguise before confronting a woman she believed was a competitor for the affections of Navy Cmdr. William Oefelein, an unmarried fellow astronaut. Nowak is shown waving an American flag as she walked out of the Operations and Checkout Building to board the NASA Astrovan en route to the Space Shuttle Discovery for mission STS-121 at Cape Canaveral, Florida on July 4, 2006.
