The illegal substance was reportedly discovered in a facility at the Kennedy Space Centre in Florida. NASA spokesman Allard Beutel said Tuesday that 4.2 grams of a white powdery substance was found last week at the NASA facility, though he would not say where. Test later showed that it was positive for cocaine. A spokeswoman from NASA's Inspector General Office in Washington declined to comment on how that case was resolved.

This is not the first time cocaine was found at the famous space centre. A small amount was discovered in January 2010 in a secure part of a hangar that housed space shuttle Discovery.
