Was NASA the victim of an attempted ROP(tm) attack? CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP)-A space program worker deliberately damaged a computer that is supposed to fly aboard shuttle Endeavour in less than two weeks, an act of sabotage that was caught before the equipment was loaded onto the spaceship, NASA said Thursday.
This unidentified employee, who works for a NASA subcontractor, cut wires inside the computer that is supposed to be delivered to the international space station by Endeavour, said Bill Gerstenmaier, NASA's space operations chief. The worker also damaged a similiar computer that was not meant to fly in space.
The sabotage occured outside Florida. Gerstenmaier did not identify the subcontractor or where the damage took place.
NASA's inspector general office is investigating. How can you tell a Jihadist nerd from other Jihadists? He can identify every single Star Wars character before calling them all infidels.
