NASA officials said Wednesday it will review psychological screening assessments of astronauts after the recent arrest of Lisa Nowak, who is charged with attempted first degree murder.
The space agency NASA will determine if there are "lessons to be learned" from the incident involving Nowak and determine if modifications need to be made, according to NASA deputy administrator Shana Dale.
Dale had told a news conference that NASA will review criteria for screening astronauts for the program and look at how often they are evaluated throughout their career. They also will review procedures to determine if any changes need to be made.
Astronaut Nowak was taken to the Johnson Space Center in Houston Wednesday for a medical evaluation, which would also include a psychological evaluation, NASA said.
