How Naomi H Lost Her NASA Scholarship to Marathon Tweets

“EVERYONE SHUT THE F— UP,” Naomi H wrote. “I GOT ACCEPTED FOR A NASA INTERNSHIP.”

Her big news caught the eye of former NASA engineer Homer Hickam, who commented “Language” underneath her tweet.

Naomi then replied, “Suck my d— and balls I’m working at NASA.” That’s when Hickam, 75, revealed his identity.

“And I am on the National Space Council that oversees NASA,” Hickam wrote.

“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,” Hickam explained on his blog.

As for why Hickam responded to Naomi’s tweets in the first place, he explained it was only to protect her future.

“I’m a Vietnam vet and not at all offended by the F-word. However, when I saw NASA and the word used together, it occurred to me that this person might get in trouble if NASA saw it,” he said.
