Submission + - Mother of current ISS Astronaut killed in accident (msn.com)

Itsallmyfault writes: The 90-year-old mother of a NASA astronaut aboard the international space station died Wednesday when a train struck her vehicle, police said. A preliminary investigation showed that Rose Tani, the mother of astronaut Daniel M. Tani, stopped behind a school bus pausing at a train crossing, Raymond Byrne, police chief in this Chicago suburb, said in a statement. She drove around the bus, bypassing the lowered crossing gate, he said. In what may have been a first for NASA, officials called Astronaut Daniel Tani over a secure connection to give him the news, then offered any help he might need.
