Alligators Are A Big Problem When It Comes To NASA

Samuel Reason | April 29th, 2019

You may be forgiven for thinking that the great minds at work at NASA would be able to deal with a couple of rogue alligators. With hundreds of the world’s top scientists working together, you would have thought they could easily establish a solution to keep the reptiles off the launchpads. Yet it looks like alligators are able to outsmart some of the world’s best without any issues.

In fact, alligators have been a long-running problem for NASA, they quickly climb over any fences and have even been known to enter buildings during the night. A few years ago, an alligator was able to dismantle a pressure-sensitive automatic door and enter the NASA’s Kennedy Space Center (KSC) during the night. And as the earlier workers came into the office, they were greeted by a six-foot reptile lounging in their lobby – under a bench.

And the strange thing is this sort of encounter happens all the time at the NASA HQ, it is not a rare occurrence at all. It would seem that alligators and NASA scientists may even be forming a partnership. They may be building the world’s most advanced spacecraft and planning out to do space farming, or which planet we will be exploring next – but it seems they are no match when it comes to keeping the headquarters safe from alligators.

There is an extremely long list of gators blocking doorways, or even hiding under employees cars. Some even climb over fences to enter secure governmental perimeters. There are hundreds of little alligators but NASA also seems to attract some of the biggest, it has been reported sometimes they even get in the fridges. Or worse there was one instance of a dog being eaten!

Yet nobody really freaks out, apparently, alligators are just seen as something that comes with the territory.
