On another planet


Global for meOn another planet


[Story Ticker] November 19

A love triangle involving three astronauts took a rather bizarre turn when in February 2007, Lisa Nowak, attempted to kidnap her love rival – Air Force Captain Colleen Shipman. The attempt involved Nowak pepper spraying Shipman as she returned from a visit to the object of their affections, then astronaut, Bill Oefelein.

If you want our correspondents to report more on the build up to the forthcoming trial – let us know at the suggest a story page today.

How did this all escalate? What has happened since? What is NASA’s official stance?

With a case as peculiar as this there is plenty more we need to know

The pretrial hearing is scheduled for, December 7th . Global for me is ready!

Listen in: Exclusive podcast by CBS’ Peter King on NASA’s latest moon adventure



Afternoon, bloggers!

Your friendly neighborhood Global for me blogger here, just call me GFKim. Today I’m bringing a bit of news to you – with a twist.

Days ago, GFM followers expressed interest in NASA’s latest lunar project. We listened, and CBS Kennedy Space Center correspondent Peter King answered. This story was covered for you!

For those curious, GFM is a new journalism experiment by international news providor Global Radio News. GRN manages 600 freelance journalists all over the world, and now we want to make them available for news consumers like you. No “middle man” whatsoever. It’s about what you want covered, not news agencies. Step on up!

(Seriously, we’re not shy. Why should you be?)

Introductions aside, GFM is excited to present an exclusive podcast by King, commissioned by you.

Congratulations on making this happen. We’re glad to work with you…!

Also, don’t forget: NASA’s lastest moon exploration is far from over. Keep tabs on the story through fun little things such as LRO’s own little Twitter page, or LCROSS too. Or for those less fond of social media, follow the old-fashioned way through NASA’s LRO and LCROSS mission pages.

Perhaps if things get interesting, we can ask King to broadcast for you again…
