ADDed 4/29/04 1255 - Reminder, if it is a warm/hot day, definitely bring water. There is a LOT of walking.


Saturday and Sunday, May 15 and 16, 2004, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days.

This popular event will celebrate JPL's accomplishments with exhibits and demonstrations about the Laboratory's ongoing research and space exploration. Many of the Lab's scientists and engineers will be on hand to answer questions about how spacecraft are sent to other planets, how scientists utilize space technologies to explore Earth and how researchers are now searching for planets beyond the solar system. Visitors will see exhibits, displays, demonstrations and presentations about new technologies, solar system exploration, spacecraft communication and much more.

The Open House is a fun and educational experience for children too, with special hands-on activities designed for kids. Food and beverages will be available, along with space souvenirs and NASA and JPL merchandise.

Admission is free. No backpacks or ice chests are allowed, with the exception of small purses and diaper bags. Visitors, vehicles and personal belongings are subject to inspection. JPL is located at 4800 Oak Grove Drive in Pasadena, off the 210 (Foothill) Freeway at the Berkshire Avenue/Oak Grove Drive exit. Parking is available near the Oak Grove main gate and on the eastern boundary of JPL, accessible from Windsor Avenue via the Arroyo Boulevard exit off the 210 Freeway. Air-conditioned buses will run non-stop between all lots and JPL's main gate. Buses and tour guides will move people between different locations around the facility. Walking is required to some locations. So make plans now to visit JPL and experience the thrill of space exploration!

For more information, please call (818) 354-0112.

I've been 2 or 3 times. It's worth it if you can. Once the machine shop was open and you could walk through it. Wowwwwwwwww!

Please sir, could you load this program? Yes, just place this 80% er, block of aluminum there. 10 minutes? Sure, I'll wait, thank you.

You could build your own space ship there!
