JET PROPULSION LABORATORY (JPL)
Friday, July 12, 2019
District Office: 2323 N. Broadway, Santa Ana
An exclusive opportunity to take a behind-the-scenes tour of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. JPL’s Pasadena campus is NASA’s lead center for robotic exploration of our solar system. From Explorer and Voyager to Cassini and the Mars rovers, the majority of unmanned spacecraft and robots sent into space were designed and built here. Since its beginnings in the 1930s, it has become a mecca to rocket scientists and space enthusiasts. This tour is the only way to take an in-depth, docent-guided tour of the campus to learn about JPL’s history and accomplishments and see Mission Control and a laboratory (pending availability). Prior to the tour, enjoy lunch on your own amongst the many quaint shops and restaurants of Old Pasadena. Required: when booking, provide full legal name as it appears on your driver’s license or other government-issued photo identification that you will be presenting to JPL security on the day of the tour (non-U.S. citizens must have proper documentation). Suggested: walking shoes as there is considerable walking on this tour. Note: A roster of names, and related security info, must be submitted on June 17th and no additions or changes may be made after that deadline.
