Selling Crap to NASA

Prosecutor: Faulty part could have destroyed shuttle, Houston Chronicle

"A Friendswood man pleaded guilty Monday to selling NASA a space shuttle part that prosecutors allege could have endangered astronauts' lives. Richard J. Harmon, 60, the former owner of Cornerstone Machining Inc. in Alvin, pleaded guilty to a federal felony charge of fraud involving a space vehicle part. U.S. District Judge Lynn Hughes scheduled Harmon's sentencing for June when he could face up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine."
