NASA Family Night: Destination Station

When: Fri., March 9, 5-9 p.m. 2012

When NASA retired its space shuttle program last July, it was an astronomical bummer to space lovers everywhere -- and Atlantis, the final shuttle launched through the program, came to symbolize the end of a quixotic era of space travel. But perhaps no one lamented the loss more than the NASA's astronauts. To be sure, you can ask one yourself: Bay Area-based astronaut Rex Walheim, who was onboard Atlantis' final mission, will visit the Chabot Space & Science Center (10000 Skyline Blvd., Oakland) on Friday, Mar. 9, where he'll sign autographs, pose for photographs, and give a Q&A from 6 p.m.-7:15 p.m. Family-friendly space-themed crafts and demonstrations run from 5.p.m-9 p.m., $11.95-$15.95. 510-336-7300 or
