What Bowie should have put in the lyrics to 'Space Oddity'

Thos enterprising people at The Smoking Gun have the answer, having got hold of a NASA memo on dealing with an astronaut flipping out:

"NASA officials suggest that crew members subdue the unstable astronaut with duct tape and bungee cords and inject the patient with a "potent tranquilizer".

Would have made 'Dark Star' a lot duller too.

Bomb number 20 exploding is intentionality at its best but once it had done it did it experience a different conciousness or had it emptied its existence by exploding?

Me, I'd have got back into the bomb bay and had a longer think, though Bomb 20 certainly had decision and courage.
