Have you heard the one about the astronaut?

By now, I'm sure all of you have heard about Lisa Nowak, the astronaut who was arrested and is now facing attempted murder charges after she drove 900 miles from her home in Houston to Orlando to confront another woman who Nowak perceived to be a rival for the affections of a male astronaut.

It seems several newspapers had fun developing headlines regarding this story for their respective publications. The Newseum offers "Today's Front Pages Analysis," where you can read about and view examples of several paper's headline choices.

"Lust in Space" is good, but I must admit my favorites were "Dark Side of the Loon," from the
New York Daily News and "From the rocket to the docket," from the Fort Worth

Dark Side of the Loon! That's great! :)

This piece of news is so wacky; it's like someone were charged with making up something outrageous...
