Cocaine Found in NASA Space Shuttle Hangar
Who's ready for liftoff? Apparently one NASA employee in Cape Canaveral, because a dime bag of cocaine was found inside the hangar housing the space shuttle Discovery.
Drugs and space travel haven't been this connected since David Bowie's Space Oddity, but it seems there's an actual "junkie, strung out in Heaven's high, hitting an all-time low."
The baggie containing cocaine residue was found outside a bathroom inside the high-security hangar. Only about 200 NASA employees and contractors have access to the building.
NASA is conducting drug tests of all employees but notes that "there are no obvious indications of anyone acting oddly or under the influence."
