    Youngsters in the East Bay will be treated to an out-of-this-world treat Monday morning.

    The children will have 20 minutes to ask questions about Expedition 52 Flight Engineer Jack Fischer's current mission in space, according to NASA. Fischer has been cruising around earth since April and is slated to return next month.
