NileGuide Expert tip:
Once a year in the spring there is a weekend-long "JPL Open House" when the general public gets to visit the campus and participate in events (for free of course). Check the JPL website to verify the date of this fun and well-attended weekend extravaganza.
- While many big cities claim to be the center of the universe, the presence of this world-renowned space laboratory may help to bolster Pasadena's claim on the title. This 177-acre site, owned and operated by NASA, has been used as the nerve center for just about every significant space exploration mission over the past 25 years. Whenever a mission goes up, this place comes alive with activity and excitement, as we saw during the successful 1998 Mars Pathfinder mission. The JPL occasionally gives two-hour tours (by appointment only) and holds numerous special events for space enthusiasts.
