NASA says goodbye to love triangle astronaut

Build a business case: developing custom apps

Astronaut Bill Oefelein, who you may remember from the tale of nappy-wearing astronaut Lisa Nowak, is leaving NASA, the space agency said on Friday.

Nowak, who now faces charges of attempted kidnapping, drove almost 1,000 miles wearing an astronauts nappy, and disguised in a trenchcoat and wig, to confront a woman she believed to be a rival for Oefelein's affections.

Four months later, NASA asked the US Navy that Oefelein be reassigned. He has been transferred to the Naval Network Warfare Command Virginia where, according to reports, he is expected to work in satellite communications.

NASA has not elaborated on its reasons for requesting the transfer, saying only that it had "determined that Commander Oefelein's detail is no longer required for the purposes it was originally granted". ®
