  • I was lucky enough to visit the site through an online booking made in a little early. The place is nice, and unlike the kennedy space center (florida) and the Johnson space center (texas) we see truly the leaven and research, one perceives the commitment and dedication of NASA and you remain continuously amazed by the things that are shown as on the tour! for hobbyists, students and workers in the sector I think is the most interesting experience you could do! (totally free tour held by researchers from the complex really awesome!)

  • Was fortunate enough to tour the facilities in early June 2016 when they opened the campus to the public. It was simply incredible. It was so well organized, and all the scientists and their wonderful exhibits make for such great role models for my 7 year old daughter. Thanks for having us.
  • hi, the biggest challenge for the space ship and space walk is cosmic radiations, witch we are protected here on earth ,because of our magnetic field created by our own earth,the question i have is: why dont we build the magnetic field to cover any space ship ( manned or unmanned ) to protect it from those cosmic radiations pushed to it by our sun or coming from near stars in our galaxy , and here we reduce the shield we build around the ship to protect it form that? and then the weight for this ship will be less and we can add more equipment and it will be safe for the astronauts in the space. regards M.

  • Fantastic young scientists in process of researching 24 7. Now getting ready for #Mars that is awesome. I got a chance to meet respected scientists and discussed journey to Mars and gravitational waves. I hope to visit back in 2017 again
  • JPL is a true gem of Pasadena. They are on the cutting edge of space exploration and interstellar technology. Tours are great and always extremely informational. Definitely try to get a tour, it's not easy though.
