This weekend is the JPL Open House! You might recall from my visits there in the past (or, at least, my reports on them – see e.g. here) that it is a fun and informative time. I recommend it. It runs from 9:00am to 5:00pm today and tomorrow, and you can go along to see what’s up with various JPL/NASA missions, hear about future missions, learn the science and technology behind various equipment and the various science goals, and much more.
See the website here for more information.
Here’s a video I made two years ago (including a Mars Rover roving over children!!!):
I hope I can go today, but I’ve got rather a lot on, including trying to find some time to prep some notes and ideas for a talk I’ve got to give tomorrow. Which I should tell you about. Next post.
