If you love anything to do with the space program, the JPL tour is for you. Fun family outing, but wear walking shoes and be prepared for stairs. Beautiful setting tucked up against the San Gabriel Mountains.
See where the fleet of probes that explore our solar system are assembled and managed. You can see the Mission Control where all of the probes are controlled: whether it is the Juno probe exploring Jupiter or watching data being received from the still functioning Voyager 1 you will find them all here. Of course I can't forget there is... 更多
After doing campus tour of Cal Tech, made the 15 minute drive to JPL, and it's like another world. Have to make tour arrangements weeks in advance, and it was worth every second of it. Son is showing interest in Aerospace engineering so we were in heaven, it is a working lab so they can only show you so much... 更多
My husband and I took the free public tour of JPL recently. For the science buff , it is fascinating, and kids clearly love it too. (If you're a fan of the TV program, The Big Bang Theory, this is where the gang works, hypothetically.) Advance reservations are required and must be made online, where you can choose a future... 更多
JPL does their once a year open house and it was great. They have so many sites with different topics and activities for kids. My kids got "ran over" by a Mars Rover demonstration. It was great! I wish they would do it more often not just 1 weekend a year. They also had food trucks, a lot of learning... 更多
The JPL open house is a MUST EVENT for the science fan of any age. Words cannot describe the access, the science, and the people. The people make the event- the director of solar system exploration standing there chatting about the subject, the person who manages Cassini just chatting about developing the program with my seven year old were all... 更多
Tickets: If you're lucky enough to get tickets, there's a mobile option to scan your tix off your phone. Bring your ID. According to repeat attendees and staff, this new format of limited tickets seems to be working better. Parking/Entrance: For a 9 am start time, go EARLY for free parking in the JPL Lot. Or, go late and catch... 更多
My Dad worked there for over 30 years. So I have been there many a time. If you go by all means go to the visitor's center as they have some neat stuff to see. Also if you are a School Teacher they will mail you some really great photos of Outer Space if you ask nicely.
You must sign up on-line months in advance to attend a free private tour (different from their annual weekend open house), but it is worth it.The e-tickets said to be there by 1 PM, but I recommend arriving a minimum of 30 minutes before that, to park. JPL covers a huge area (they said it is larger than Disneyland) full... 更多
Find out about tours and take one. See space probes, rockets, videos and photos of missions. Look through a window at real scientists (Rocket science) working in the dust free environment And if you look carefully there are deer on the campus that just like to hang out. History is being made here every day. Check for lectures , too.
