Louisiana astronaut charged

Louisiana doesn't have many astronauts to its credit yet, but James Halsell was one of them. He flew the Space Shuttle five times and retired in 2006. He often visited New Orleans’ Michoud Assembly Facility in his home state to see work being done on the Space Shuttle External Tanks. He led the NASA Return to Flight Planning Team, responsible for implementing the recommendations of the Columbia accident investigation board into the Shuttle Program. But now, he's under criminal investigation for his own car accident, which killed two young girls near Tuscaloosa, Alabama. [09/10/2020]
