Alan Shepard driving?
Hmmm, I feel uncomfortable driving when I've had flare-ups. How does one control a space craft if one's menier's acts up? Not exactly a place to sit down and close your eyes.

Re: Alan Shepard driving?
yeah, makes one wonder. people have it to varying degrees, but still it's not like he could predict how severe any given episode would be. I'm surprised NASA kept him honestly... they're pretty rigid in their employment policies, something akin to Air Force pilot standards.
