Self-respecting geeks living in NYC have got virtually no excuse not to meet up with the crew of NASA's Atlantis this week — the last team to fly aboard a space shuttle.


The team of astronauts will be in the Big Apple all week long meeting with members of the public at various events around the city, which include a visit to the Colbert Report and a free public event on Wednesday called "What's Your Favorite Space?" at Eventi Plaza. Here's a list of times and locations where you can catch the crew for questions, autographs, and more:

When: Tuesday, August 16 from 10:30 am to 11:30 am
Where: The American Museum of Natural History


When: Wednesday, August 17 from 10am to 4pm
Where: Eventi Plaza

When: Thursday, August 18 from 10 am to 2:30 pm
Where: New York City's Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum

I love NASA and S-P-A-C-E, but still...the whole Space Shuttle thing just seemed so routine and airline-ish (even though I'm well aware it was an insanely complex machine, etc)...the only time it REALLY fascinated me was when it was blowing up (or being canceled, and even then, my interest was purely on what would replace it).
