A scientist has appeared in court for allegedly trying to sell classified secrets to an FBI agent posing as an Israeli intelligence agent. Stewart David Nozette was informed of the charges against him Tuesday in front of U.S. Magistrate Judge Deborah Robinson. A former colleague says Nozette worked on the Reagan administration's Star Wars missile shield program.

He is accused in a criminal complaint of attempting to communicate, deliver and transmit classified information. The 52-year-old Chevy Chase, Md., man worked in various jobs for the Energy Department and NASA. In 1989 and 1990, he worked for the White House's National Space Council.
