"It occurred to me that this young person might get in trouble if NASA saw it so I tweeted her one word: "Language" and meant to leave it at that", Hickam wrote in his statement.

The engineer said the woman reached out to him with an apology, which he "heartily accepted".

It remains to be seen if the NASA hopeful will realize her dream, but it looks like she has learned her lesson from the encounter as she made her Twitter account private so future employers won't see her posts.
