NASA astronaut Lisa ‘Robochick’ Nowak proves that even robots can experience “love malfunctions” as she drives cross-country to confront her ‘love rival’, a woman she believed was romantically involved with William ‘Billy O’ Oefelein (astronauts, like Top Gun Academy pilots, all have groovy nicknames, apparently…).
