Remember those pesky little library fines for keeping a book checked out too long? As much as those may have hurt your wallet, I came across a much worse punishment for borrowing a book.
A South Korean astronaut has lost his chance to be the first person from his country to enter space when he borrowed a book from a Russian space training center. He apparently violated the rules by not asking permission and sending the book home by accident. He tried to return the book, but he was too late. He is out, and instead a female engineer from Korea has taken his place.
