Woman loses NASA Internship after vulgar tweet

A certain Joel Franco (@OfficialJoelF), who shared the screenshot last August 23, wrote: "Imagine getting accepted to be a NASA intern and instantly losing your job for telling National Space Council member and former NASA engineer Homer Hickam to "suck my d*ck and b*lls" - that's exactly what happened here".

The saga began Monday when user Naomi H celebrated her acceptance into the internship program with a profanity-laced tweet.

That tweet was found by Homer Hickam, a former NASA engineer and member of the National Space Council, who wrote: 'Language'. The woman snapped back at the man named Homer Hickam saying, "Suck my d*** and balls, I'm working at NASA".

Mr Hickman responded to Naomi's comment by informing her he was on the National Space Council that oversees NASA. "I got accepted for a NASA internship", she wrote.

Hickam, for his part, published a blog post soon after the events transpired and went viral, saying that he had nothing to do with the loss of Naomi's internship.

A not-so-tactful scientist has seen her dream of joining NASA snatched away after she posted several foul-mouthed messages to Twitter while celebrating getting an internship at the space agency.

The 75-year-old's memoir about his space career, Rocket Boys, was a New York Times best seller and was the basis for the 1999 film October Sky.

Thomas also added that if their father's heart attack had happened before Meghan was famous she would have rushed to his bedside. Evidently, Thomas thinks Meghan isn't extending an olive branch to her dad because she feels she's "above everybody else".

"This I had nothing to do with nor could I since I do not hire and fire at the agency or have any say on employment whatsoever", he wrote.

You never know whose watching.

He said that, through the NASA hashtag, a number of the comments came to the agency's attention.

He wrote: 'Homer Hickam should be less uptight about somebody being excited that they got to work at NASA. The blog post has since been removed, but you can read most of the original on Buzzfeed, here.

Naomi reached out with "an unnecessary apology" which Hickam returned with his own, he wrote. "I have also talked to the folks that had to do with her internship and made absolutely certain that there will be no black mark on her record". Some Twitter users say that she was acting like a "twat" and deserved to get fired.

Naomi H, too, appears to have learned a lesson.
