The National Aerospace Agency of the U.S. scandal erupted - the medical commission of the Government disclosed that U.S. astronauts flew into space in a state of extreme intoxication, at least twice. On the "drunk" colleagues were known to the wide range of people, however, drunken flying is still held. Reported by the authoritative publication Aviation Week.

In possession of this journal were the materials of the report of the commission, headed by a recognized expert, famous surgeon and rector of the School of Aerospace Medicine United States Air Force Colonel Richard Bachmann. The Board found that, at least in two cases, American astronauts were allowed to make a space flight, despite a warning from a fellow astronauts and flight attendants to doctors about what level of alcohol poisoning, sent into orbit was so high that they represented a real threat to the safety of the flight the shuttle.

The Commission also found other evidence of "significant use of alcohol" by U.S. astronauts before space missions - in violation of the most brutal rule by NASA that any use of alcohol is completely prohibited for 12 hours before the launch of the spacecraft. Reported by the RSN.
