"A Ticket to Explore JPL” is a special weekend when JPL opens its doors to the public and displays all the ways they are exploring the solar system and beyond. Advance tickets are required to this event on June 9-10, 2018 from 8:30 am to 4 pm.
Tickets are free, but limited, and will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis beginning April 7, 2018 starting at 9 a.m. at https://explore.jpl.nasa.gov. Maximum number of tickets per requestor is five and must be reserved for specific names.
At "Explore JPL," visitors will have the opportunity to see, among other things, a life-sized model of InSight -- the next mission to Mars, scheduled to launch in May -- and Mars rovers, plus JPL's machine shop, where precise parts are made for spacecraft. This event coincides with the 60thanniversary of NASA. The agency was created in 1958.
Although children under two do not require a ticket, experiences at the event are not intended for very young guests.
