In a voyage a decade in the making, NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft swept by Pluto Tuesday. As cheers went up inside NASA’s Mission Control, hundreds of people partying at Chabot Space and Science Center were cheering as well.
Extreme solar weather events pushed the Northern Lights so far last week that one Bay Area photographer was lucky enough to capture the celestial phenomenon.
The Chabot Space & Science Center launched a pilot program Thursday giving low-income families with an EBT card admission to the center for $1 per person.
