I was gonna go to the moon....but then I got high

(CNN) -- NASA says it has launched an investigation after finding cocaine in a processing hangar for a space shuttle at Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
A small amount of cocaine was found in a restricted area of the processing hangar for the shuttle Discovery, NASA said in a statement.
"This is a rare and isolated incident, and I'm disappointed that it happened, but it should not detract from the outstanding work that is being done by a dedicated team on a daily basis," Kennedy Space Center Director Bob Cabana said in the statement.
NASA has drug-tested employees who worked in that area, the statement said.
"There were about 200 NASA and contractor personnel who were around the facility at the time the drug was found," the statement said.
CNN affiliate WESH reported that the cocaine was found this week in a small bag on the floor near a bathroom in the restricted area.
NASA is using its own security and law enforcement officials to conduct the investigation.
Discovery's next launch is in March, NASA says.
"There is no reason whatsoever to believe this incident will have any impact on Discovery's upcoming launch," Cabana said

Maybe someone thinks it will help them be alert for the launch?

Naturally, no one will test positive for cocaine. But I'm sure several people who smoked some herb two weeks ago will lose their jobs.

Still, I would hope NASA staff are completely sober and clear minded during the weeks surrounding a shuttle launch.

Maybe this will finally crash the outmoded Space Shuttle program, and we can make something better.

Something that uses NEW computers, instead of twenty year old ones.

That's pretty crazy, I can't imagine who would be that desperate to hid it at their place of work. Let alone a government building.

It's not about new computers it is about reliability and bug free code. One line of buggy computer code or one computer crash/less then perfect failover and they are done for. Almost by definition they have to use old(er) computer tech -- the software/hardware needs to be tested for years before they are sure it is bug free.

Do you KNOW what they are using? It's so obsolete, there is only one programmer in the world who can write for it, and he lives in a wine cask on the top of Mount BoraBora.
