Crack found in foam of shuttle fuel tank

By John Breneman

The above headline from the New York Times Web site on Monday raises troubling questions about America's space program.

Most pressing: How did a crack dealer get close enough to the shuttle to hide a stash of rock cocaine in Discovery's foam-insulated fuel tank?

NASA engineers are now analyzing whether the mission should be scrubbed so they can check the O-rings for angel dust.

A source close to the shuttle's janitor said one of the astronauts was planning to conduct unauthorized experiments on the effects of crack cocaine in a weightless environment.

Police reportedly have questioned Lt. Tyrone Biggums, whose NASA bio identifies his hero as legendary Apollo 11 stoner Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin.
