Wonder If Texas Monthly Will Run a "Drunk Astronaut" Cover

Categories: Spaced City
You work for a government agency that’s been involved with one debacle after another. You’re sent on a mission for them. What are you going to do?

Get drunk off your ass.

Aviation Week is reporting that NASA doctors on at least two occasions cleared astronauts to go up in the shuttle even though they were intoxicated.

There was also this:

The panel also reported "heavy use of alcohol" by astronauts before launch, within the standard 12-hour "bottle to throttle" rule applied to NASA flight crew members.

Ain’t no party like a NASA party. Plus you got the whole diaper thing, so you don’t even have to get out of your seat to take a leak.

Get your movie titles right here:

Apollo .13

Star Trek 2: The Wrath of Coors

One Small Step For Man, One Giant Drink For Mankind

And, of course, the Mel Brooks spoof Spacebuzz.
