Drunken astronauts allowed to fly

NASA let astronauts fly drunk on at least two occasions, an independent panel said in a report released Friday.
The report gave no names and did not say when the drinking occurred, how many astronauts were involved, or whether they were flying on the space shuttle, the Russian Soyuz spaceship, or aboard NASA’s training airplanes.
Well at least there not alot they can run over.:D

Do the astronauts actually control anything during launch?

Oh like the original Mercury and Gemini astronauts didn't get drunk prior to a launch. I saw "From the Earth to the Moon" on HBO. I know what's going on. :D

Tini Time for the space boys. I wonder if they like olives or just a dirty tini :D
Maybe it is time for all spacecraft and airplanes to be remote controlled from the home base :eek: We would not need pilots just computer programmers. :laugh:
