There was drama on Social media, yesterday, after a woman named, Naomi H, won and lost an internship at NASA in less than a day, thanks to her tweet.
Naomi didn’t tell just any member of the National Space Council to “suck [her] dick and balls.” Homer Hickam is a NASA engineering legend.
But in fact, Hickam didn’t make Naomi suffer. Instead, he took responsibility, noting on his blog that while he’s not bothered by the word “f*ck” he thought his superiors at NASA might be.
Once he found out that Naomi lost her internship offer, the two connected and apologized to each other. “After talking to her, I am certain she deserves a position in the aerospace industry and I’m doing all I can to secure her one that will be better than she lost.
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,” Hickam wrote.
