Submission + - Cure Space Madness with Duct Tape, Tranqs

eldavojohn writes: "Concerns were raised about astronaut instability after the breakdown of Lisa Nowak but NASA already has detailed written procedures for this scenario: Duct Tape. That's right, the universal "fixes everything but marriages" silver strip of stickiness is apparently the answer when your crewmate's going ape. From the article, "The documents, obtained this week by The Associated Press, say the astronaut's crewmates should bind his wrists and ankles with duct tape, tie him down with a bungee cord and inject him with tranquilizers if necessary." Well, I'm glad NASA thought of everything!"
