Bring out your inner geek at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory’s (JPL) Open House June 9th and 10th at the Cal Tech campus in Pasadena!  NASA’s jet propulsion lab is a world leader in science and technology, developing cutting-edge tools for space exploration as well as influencing many areas of technology we use every day.  Just some of the missions taking place right now are a new Mars rover mission to determine whether the planet is or ever was inhabitable to life, satellite missions to study the Earth’s climate change, and observatory missions to survey and characterize the composition and temperature of hundreds of distant planets.  The theme of this year’s open house is “Great Journeys” and will educate visitors through the use of high-definition and 3D videos, live rover demonstrations, and interactions with scientists and engineers.  If you are interested in space exploration and technology, then this FREE event is for you!
