There will be a Comet Shoemaker-Levy display set up for the JPL Open House on July 16 & 17, 1994. The display will be in the museum area next to Von Karman Auditorium and will be staffed by Gil Clark. A one-page handout will be available. There will also be a link to Mt. Wilson Observatory, and Gil Clark will be downloading images from Mt. Wilson and displaying them during the Open House.
The Jet Propulsion Laboratory's 50th anniversary of space exploration will be the focus of a two-day open house at JPL on Saturday and Sunday, July 16-17, 1994.
The open house will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days; admission is free, and guests may park in Lab parking lots.
Hosts at the Lab's main entrance will answer questions and direct visitors to points of interest, which will include the Space Flight Operations Facility and the Spacecraft Assembly Facility. Displays in JPL's main mall will focus on ongoing projects representing the Lab's work for NASA and other agencies.
"Welcome to Outer Space," a multi-image production about JPL's history, missions and future vision, will be shown in von Karman Auditorium. Also, full-size models of the Voyager and Galileo spacecraft and Galileo images of Earth, the Moon and asteroids will be available for viewing in the adjacent museum.
