Drunk Space Drivers – getting "high" to go Higher!

Hmm.. it takes a lot to get up there in space these days! So, we some going up after getting a little tipsy.

"Interviews with both flight surgeons and astronauts identified some episodes of heavy use of alcohol by astronauts in the immediate preflight period, which has led to flight safety concerns. Alcohol is freely used in crew quarters. Two specific instances were described where astronauts had been so intoxicated prior to flight that flight surgeons and/or fellow astronauts raised concerns to local on-scene leadership regarding flight safety. However, the individuals were still permitted to fly."

You know its a lot better to be a "space-driver" than a car driver. Here at least you know a drunk driver will be booked! Here these guys are regularly getting high in spirits .. and HIGH in space!!
