  • JPL rolls out the red carpet once a year and it is worth braving the crowds to get a look at the cutting edge of technology and space exploration. Many of the labs and workshops are open and the people who actually build and work on the space probes and satellites are on hand to talk about their missions and how the spacecraft are built. Be sure to get there early as the event is always packed to the gills. If they offer it, be sure to take the shuttle bus up to the deep space simulator building where you can see the giant vacuum chamber where spacecraft are stress tested before heading off into space. If you really want to make someone's day, have your kids bring a space science book and ask the engineers and scientists for autographs. My daughter did that one year and I can't tell you how happy they were that someone thought so highly of them. I can't think of a better way to say thank you to them for all they do that goes unrecognized.
  • 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.
  • It is a shame we are not permitted to see the final orbit photos of Ceres even though we paid for them. Like the moon close ups , there might have been evidence of extra-terrestials. Such evidence always makes NASA go into lockdown mode. It might be time for NASA to be de-funded, and replaced with private enterprise.
  • 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.
