NASA Investigation

In late July 2007, Committee Chair Bart Gordon (D-Tenn.) announced that the House Science and Technology Committee would lead an investigate into how NASA tends to astronauts’ medical and mental health. The announcement came after NASA released a report, which was prompted after the controversy surrounding Lisa Nowak, a former astronaut who attempted to kidnap a colleague involved in a love triangle. The report recommended significant reforms in astronaut oversight, particularly regarding mental health and alcohol use. Gordan stated that the hearings would most likely occur in September by the Subcommittee on Space and Aeronautics.[1]
