Submission + - NASA to Duct Tape Psychotic Astronauts

Thib writes: After NASA astronaut Lisa Novak reportedly tried to kidnap and kill another woman in a much-publicized love triangle last month, NASA added five pages to a thousand-page document detailing all procedures for dealing with medical emergencies. Their guidelines: duct tape. From the CNN 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." The article features various tidbits from previous NASA and Russian missions and from previous stays in the International Space Station and in the Mir space station. NASA is also thinking of revising its policies on psychological screening.
