nasa's jet propulsion laboratory
last sunday we went to j.p.l. for their annual open house. from the observation deck we got to see the new mars rover which is currently under construction in several different stages in this laboratory. apparently it is scheduled to be launched in 2012.
there were huge lines for every building and exhibit because of the fact that it was free, but we still had a great time. still kind of weird to me that this is right here in pasadena.
speaking of local events, our public information officer has a great list of upcoming free events. and today, i'll be attending this.
