NASA is calling the discovery of a noose at one of its Virginia facilities "deeply disturbing."

A contractor at the Wallops Flight Facility on Wallops Island, Va., jokingly made a noose for a co-worker who was in a bad mood. That's according to a March 29 memo from Chris Scolese, director of the Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt.

The contractors left the noose behind, and a contractor with another company found it.

NASA says the person who made the noose has been denied access to NASA facilities until the agency completes its investigation.

Scolese will brief Wallops employees Thursday on the investigation.
