As a naval flying officer/flight test engineer, she participated in the development of the F/A-18 and EA-6B. Born in Washington, D.C., she was selected by NASA with NASA Astronaut Group 16 in 1996 and qualified as a mission specialist in robotics. On November 10, 2009, she agreed to a plea deal with prosecutors and pleaded guilty to charges of felony burglary of a car and misdemeanor battery.

On January 16, 2008, a judge postponed the trial indefinitely, as well as the pre-trial hearing to be held on March 12, 2008, pending the outcome of the state's appeal of an earlier decision to suppress evidence obtained on the day of her arrest.
, In response to concerns over Nowak's mental health, NASA Administrator Michael D. Griffin commissioned the NASA Astronaut Health Care System Review Committee, an independent panel, to examine how well NASA attended to the mental health of its astronauts.  Her next assignment was to Electronic Warfare Aggressor Squadron 34 (VAQ-34) at NAS Point Mugu, California, where she flew on both the Corsair II and the Douglas ERA-3B Skywarrior, supporting the U.S. Pacific Fleet in small and large-scale exercises with jamming and missile profiles. , For her first assignment, Caputo chose a six-month secondment to the Johnson Space Center, where she worked as an aerospace engineer at its branch at Ellington Air Force Base near Houston, Texas. , On May 11, 2007, authorities released a surveillance video from the Orlando International Airport terminal purporting to show Nowak waiting for nearly an hour, standing near the baggage claim, then donning a trench coat and later following Shipman after she retrieved her bags. , Shipman said that after arriving, she was aware of someone following her to an airport satellite parking area. Juli 2011 erklärte Staatssekretär der Navy Juan M. Garcia III, dass Nowak vom Captain zum Commander a. D. degradiert wurde. During the launch of Space Shuttle Discovery for STS-114 in July 2005, debris had separated from the external tank, which previously had caused the loss of the Space Shuttle Columbia. , Nowak and her family moved to Texas, where they built a house in Clear Lake City.
, In December 2003, NASA announced that STS-121 would be commanded by Steven Lindsey, with Mark Kelly as pilot and Michael Fossum and Carlos Noriega as mission specialists.
On March 2, Florida prosecutors filed three formal charges against Nowak: (1) attempted kidnapping with intent to inflict bodily harm or terrorize, (2) burglary of a conveyance with a weapon, and (3) battery.  Am 28.  STS-121 successfully launched on July 4 at 14:38.  In the second arraignment Nowak was charged with attempted first-degree murder with a deadly weapon, for which the judge raised bail by $10,000. It was then used to make a final check of the Space Shuttle to ensure that no damage had been done by micrometeorites or space debris. , While Discovery was docked with the ISS, the STS-121 crew conducted three spacewalks. She remained a Navy captain until August 2010, when a naval board of inquiry voted unanimously to reduce her in rank to commander and to discharge her from the Navy under other than honorable conditions after 25 years of service. Lisa Marie Nowak (née Caputo, born May 10, 1963) is an American aeronautical engineer, former United States Navy captain, naval flight officer and test pilot, and NASA astronaut. Einen Monat später wurde sie von der NASA aus der Astronautengruppe ausgeschlossen.
There, she was involved in the development of flight training curricula for broad use throughout the Navy. It would also re-supply the International Space Station with equipment and consumables. The crew got to meet pitcher Roger Clemens and throw ceremonial first pitches.  She gave birth to her son, Alexander, in February 1992.  The STS-121 mission was originally scheduled for March or April 2005, but was postponed to July.  Patricia Santy, a former NASA flight surgeon and the author of the book Choosing the Right Stuff: Psychological Selection of Astronauts and Cosmonauts, described a culture among the Astronaut Corps to avoid discussing physical and psychological issues with medical personnel, due to the perception that any issues could jeopardize one's career and flight status.
Some discoloration found on the leading edges was attributed to hydraulic fluid spills.  Among the personal effects she packed for the flight was a small owl figurine of the mascot of Luxmanor Elementary School, a koozie from Tilden Middle School, a banner from Charles W. Woodward High School, an Annapolis Class of 1985 flag, and her grandmother's engagement ring.
 At 15:42, the launch was scrubbed due to thunderstorm activity in the area. At half time she presented Annapolis with a Navy jersey she had carried on board Discovery. , Some 4,300 pounds (2,000 kg) of trash, experiment results and broken equipment were packed into Leonardo, and the robotic arm was used to re-stow the module in Discovery's cargo bay. He found a job as a space communications contractor with Barrios Technology, an aerospace company, and worked at the Johnson Space Center as a flight controller at the mission control center.

Im Dezember 2002 wurde Lisa Nowak erstmals für einen Space-Shuttle-Flug aufgestellt: Sie sollte mit Kommandant Scott Kelly, Pilot Charles Hobaugh, sowie den Missionsspezialisten Dave Williams, Scott Parazynski und Barbara Morgan an Bord von STS-118 im November 2003 zur Raumstation fliegen. On April 1, 2009, the judge ordered Nowak to undergo two psychiatric evaluations before June 12, 2009. After graduation, she stayed on at Patuxent River, flying in the F/A-18 Hornet and EA-6B Prowler.
 Nowak told investigators she was involved in a relationship with Oefelein which she described as being "more than a working relationship but less than a romantic relationship".
 Oefelein informed Nowak about Shipman in January. They covered 20 kilometres (12 mi) in eleven days, completing the course on January 29. Nowak was released on bail, and initially pleaded not guilty to the charges, which included attempted kidnapping, burglary with assault, and battery.  Female cadets were still harassed from some male classmates in 1981, and occasionally a professor would inform a class that he did not think women belonged there. Nowak wurde am 5. Nowak verließ 1981 die Charles W. Woodward High School in Rockville (Maryland). Nowak verließ 1981 die Charles W. Woodward High School in Rockville (Maryland).
", The 2007 Law & Order: Criminal Intent episode "Rocket Man" was inspired by Nowak's story and featured a love triangle among astronauts. , A pre-trial hearing was held on July 17, 2007, and further hearings were to be held on September 19, to argue defense motions to suppress some of the evidence obtained on the day of her arrest.
Several Orlando Police Department Airport Division officers arrived minutes later, with the first officer observing Nowak throwing a bag into the trash at a parking shuttle bus stop.
 They were assigned the task of manipulating the robotic arms of the Space Shuttle and the International Space Station.  Nach ihrer Entlassung aus dem Astronautenkorps war sie zunächst auf der Naval Air Training station in Corpus Christi, Texas tätig.  Nowak retired from the Navy with the rank of commander on September 1, 2011.
Because there was so many of them, they were often packed in, and called themselves "The Sardines". Women astronauts were assigned to other tasks like operating the robotic arms.  In October 2001, she gave birth to twin daughters, Alyssa and Katrina.
STS-121, the second Return to Flight mission, was postponed until a solution to the problem could be found.
