Remember James Lovell heroically saving ill-fated spacecraft Apollo 13 by jerryrigging a homemade gas valve with duct tape and other spare parts? Apparently NASA is still teaching such home brew skills. Love-torn Atstronut Lisa Nowak gathered plenty of home items when she made her non-stop diaper laden drive to find the women that stole her boy friend. We knew about the BB gun, brand new steel mallet, knife, and rubber tubing that were immediately found in her car. Now we learn what she may have wished to do with these items. According to a forensic examination report by the Orlando Police Department, sixteen images on a disk found in her car depicted bondage scenes showing images and drawings of a nude woman.
Did she like to be tied up? Did she plan to tie up her rival? Which would make a better film? Lovell’s exploits were captured to much fanfare by Tom Hanks in the film Apollo 13. Who will play play the part of Lisa Nowak? When her scheduled trial starts in September, she may have to claim an interest in the former for these potentially incriminating images not to bolster the prosecution’s argument that she intended to harm her victim.
